Ochieng focuses on Gor positives



Tusker Premier League giants Gor Mahia have had a difficult past two days since managing a 1–1 draw with Thika United that killed off any hopes of the 12-time champions winning the league title in the recently concluded season.

The draw led to unrest in the stands, with some fans blaming goalkeeper and captain Jerim Onyango for the blunder that led to the visitors’ goal, but vice chairman Faiz Ochieng has called on them to rather focus on the future.

Faiz acknowledged that a loss or a draw is part of the game and wants the fans to rise above the setback as they prepare for the AFC Leopards match on Sunday 18 November in the President’s Cup.

“We did not lose a thing,” said Faiz. “Judging from where we came from in the season, we should have a lot to look up to. I understand it is hard to take that we lost it when very close but that is not a reason to throw away all the gains made.”

“We should stop blaming the players for the miss; they did their best. All of us did our best despite the difficult circumstances. We should instead give each other a pat on the back and shift focus to the AFC Leopards game next week.”

“We are champions in our own right so we should not water it down by whining over spilled milk.”

The draw, coupled with Tusker FC’s win over Nairobi City Stars at the Hope Centre, meant Gor Mahia fell short by a point.
