We deserved to win - Logarusic



Gor Mahia handed AFC Leopards a 2-1 beating in their President’s Cup semi-final match, at the Moi International Sports Centre on Saturday.

Speaking of the performance, Gor Mahia’s head coach Zdravko Logarusic said his team played well and as a result deserved the win.

“In the match, the players were inspired a bit more – our strikers were in good form and they scored at the right time. AFC had their chances which they failed to utilise and they eventually paid the price. We scored first and afterwards we scored again. I think we deserved to win,” said Logarusic.

Speaking of the performance of key players Ivo Mapunda and Kevin Omondi, Logarusic said that the players came into the match understanding the day’s tactical approach, and they ended up performing well.

“It is the players’ job to produce something. Mapunda has waited the whole season for a chance to prove his worth and he did well. Omondi has also been coming on and off throughout the season but he was the main man in our last match and I am sure we made the right decision to include him in the match.”

“As a coach there are times when you make the right decision and there are days when you don’t. But I think today we made the right call.”

Gor now have to wait for the match between Tusker and Sofapaka to be played to know who they will take on in the final of the tournament.
