Gor kick off pre season

Kenyan Premier League (KPL) giants Gor Mahia resumed training on Thursday at City Stadium in preparation for the new season without a couple of their players and head coach Zdravko Logarusic.

Logarusic, who left the country at the end of last term for Christmas festivities in Croatia, is expected to jet into the country on Saturday 12 January 2013.

Three of their key new signings, Paul Kiongera, Israel Emuge and Brazilian forward Giovanni Rodriguez are among the players who missed Gor’s first training session of the campaign.

Others include the KPL Defender of the Year Ivan Anguyo, Christopher Wekesa, David Owino, Antony Akumu and Kevin Omondi. Kiongera, who recently joined Gor from KCB, together with Wekesa, Owino, Akumu and Omondi are currently training with the Kenya national team for Sunday’s African Nations Championship [CHAN] return leg against the Swallows of Burundi.

Rodriguez, Anguyo and his fellow countryman Emuge are expected to link up with the rest of the team on Friday.

According to the club’s senior vice-chairman David Kiilo, the team will train for two weeks under the watchful eye of Logarusic’s deputy Bobby Ogolla before engaging in a series of friendly matches in preparation for the Caf Confederations Cup competition.

“Anguyo and Israel are expected too jet in today from Uganda as well as Rodriguez who had some complications in his travelling documents,” said Kiilo.

“Kiongera, Owino, Wekesa, Akumu and Omondi also missed today’s training session due to national team commitments. The rest of the team is okay and Ogolla will lead them until coach Logarusic returns. We have received a number of friendly invites across the region. We will train for two weeks as we weigh up the friendly options.”
