New signings impress Gor’s Kerr but Musa future uncertain
Gor Mahia FC Coach Dylan Kerr says the club’s new recruits have given his side the right squad balance and depth necessary to compete at the CAF Champions League.
The Kenyan Premier League (KPL) champions have already resumed camp ahead of their two-legged CAF CL preliminary round fixture against Equatorial Guinea champions Vegetarianos on February 10 and 17.
Kerr disclosed they are leaving nothing to chance with the technical staff digging up information on their upcoming opponents in order to devise how to break them down.
“It’s not an easy task for us because this is the biggest stage of club football in the continent. We want to plan appropriately so we can match the expectations of our fans,” Kerr told Citizen Digital.
The record champions are on a two-week high altitude pre-season training at Egerton University with almost all of their newly acquired stars already reporting to camp.
Charles Momanyi, Ivorian Ephraim Guikan, Wesley Onguso, Kevin Omondi, Humphrey Mieno, Samuel Onyango, Ian Otieno and Lawrence Juma who were signed during the close season have all been registered for the CAF assignments.
Captain Musa Mohammed whose future at K’Ogalo has been subject to intense speculation is yet to link up with the team with Kerr admitting he is not ‘100 percent’ sure he will still be at the club at the start of the season.
“l am not 100 percent sure what is happening to Musa but on Friday five of our players left for the KPL Awards and then they will be back on Saturday for the weekend friendly matches.
“The new players have really impressed me in training; they look motivated are focused so we can only forward for a successful year,” he underscored.
The 2018 campaign is scheduled to kick off on February 3 and the Englishman has expressed his desire to ensure Gor hold on to their crown.
“Every team will want to beat Gor next season but they should know we are stronger than before.”
