Kamau feels sorry for Gor



Thika United coach John Kamau felt for Gor Mahia after their Tusker Premier League final day heartbreak but believes his side was by far the better team on the day and deserved the point they got.

Gor needed a win over their counterparts to win their first league title in 17 years, but they could only manage a 1-1 draw at a shell shocked City Stadium on Saturday.

When Rama Salim cancelled out Kennedy Otieno’s opener for Thika with 20 minutes to go, all pointers were towards a Gor win, but Thika held on to hand the league title to Tusker FC.

Kamau felt sorry for Gor on the way things panned out but was at the same time happy with his side’s performance.

“I feel sorry for Gor, they have come a long way to this point only to lose it,” he said. “It is a hard situation for them and one that you do not wish on anyone, but that is the nature of the game.

“Overall, I thought we were the better side and deserved to get a point, if not all three. “My players did very well and controlled the game for a long time, we had many chances to score but could not convert. “Even in the end, we should have scored from the counter attack, but considering the circumstances, a draw was a fair result.”

This year, Thika have been on the periphery of the title race and Kamau admits that they should have done better than they managed in the end.

“We have been in and around the title race this year and at times were in some very good positions. We should have done better in many respects because we had the chances to move very close to the top.”

“That is the regret this season, that we could have made more of our challenge at the top. The position we finish in is good, it shows that we are not far off the top places which is very good. Hopefully, we can build more of a real push next season.”

Thika finished the Premier League in fifth place.
