Zico confident Gor will return to top of KPL
Gor mahia FC stand-in Coach Zedekiah Otieno is confident his team will bounce back to the top of the league despite the shock 2-0 loss to Sofapaka at the Kinoru stadium in Meru on Sunday.
Speaking to Citizen Digital, the coach stated the importance of a quick response to the defeat.
“Definitely is not a good thing to lose in the first match, but all in all loses are there. So I think we have to take this with high dignity and move forward,” said Zico.
Sofapaka Ugandan coach Sam Ssimbwa was over the moon as the Sofapaka ship steadily charters the rough and unpredictable Kenyan Premier League waters.
“Am avery proud man when I beat big teams. I beat AFC Leopards, Gor Mahia and now I want to beat Tusker FC and from there I will be very happy. You know when you are a big coach like me and big teams beat you, it is not a good feeling,” the Ugandan said.
Defending champions Tusker Fc moved top of the table despite dropping points in a barren draw against newly promoted Kariobangi Sharks. The brewers are now a point about the green army who have 27 points.
“It is good we got that point that took us top of the table but the challenge now is When you are top of the table every team will want to double their efforts when they are coming to face you so we have to remain focused and take one game at a time,” Tusker assistant coach Francis Baraza said.
Ulinzi stars remained third on the log after yet another draw, this time a 1-1 affair against their bogey team Sony Sugar FC. Head coach Benjamin Nyangweso lamented his team’s wastefulness in front of goal.
“We didn’t utilize the chances that we created, the break had an effect to the players co-odinations but it’s a normal thing especially after such a break, we will work on that and improve on our next game,” Nyangweso said.
Mathare United FC and Western Stima FC remained bottom of the table after they drew in their respective matches. The league takes a break this weekend to pave way for the GOtv Shield Cup first round and will resume June 30th.
