Koops plots Gor downfall
AFC Leopards coach Jan Koops is out to secure a win against Gor Mahia when the two rivals clash in the FKF Cup semifinals at Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani on Saturday.
Koops who lost 2-1 in his previous Nairobi derby expects an entertaining match that will renew rivalry once again.
“It is always a special game for the players, clubs and fans, mainly because of what it brings and the audience it attracts, it defines what is expected,” he told supersport.com.
“Gor Mahia is a strong team and a good opposition and this match is good for local football. I hope that hooliganism doesn’t repeat itself because it’s hurting Kenyan football.”
“I know without a doubt that we have a good chance of winning the game and that is what we will try and execute when we clash.”
He also commented on the involvement of players that were out on International duty this week.
“It is definitely a plus for us, because International assignments ensure that they gain fitness and experience and they come back better for club duties. Hence, they will certainly feature in the match against Gor Mahia.”
This will be the 100th meeting between the two sides.
