After their disastrous league campaign that saw them finish a distant 8th and 20 points behind eventual champions Tusker FC, Gor Mahia FC head coach Mark Harrison believes the team has all it takes to turn things around next season.
Gor Mahia kick-off their league campaign with a match against bankers KCB on Saturday, September 25, 2021 at the Kasarani Stadium.
They will however have to first face Brewers Tusker FC on Wednesday, September 22 at the Thika Stadium for the Super Cup.
Ahead of the high profile matches, coach Harrison has stated that Gor will be out to reclaim the title they lost to Tusker last season.
“The pandemic has brought many challenges to not only Gor but to many teams across the world but we are determined to give our best and regain the title we lost to Tusker last season, that’s our main aim locally” Harrison told Citizen.
CAF CONFEDERATIONS CUP
Gor will also be taking part in the CAF Confederations cup and have drawn Sudanese side Al-Ahly Merowe in the second preliminary round.
The first leg of the match will be played on October 15 at the Al-Ubayyid Stadium in Sudan after which Gor will host Merowe in Nairobi a week later at the Nyayo Stadium.
Coach Harrison is keen on guiding Gor past the group stages on the Continental scene.
“We are also determined to go past the group stages in our continental assignment. We know we will face tough opponents but we know our strength as a team. We will want to capitalize on that and make Kenyans proud.”
Gor have signed a number of players to help bolster the squad after losing a number of key players who left due to financial problems.
Among the players who have joined Gor Mahai are Congolese striker Yangayay Sando Sando and Malian goalkeeper Adama Keita.
Also joining K’Ogallo are ex-Kariobangi Sharks winger Peter Lwasa and former Wazito defender Dennis Ng’ang’a.
Midfielder Peter Oudu has also joined Gor Mahia from Kariobangi Sharks.
