Logarusic unhappy with Odhiambo loss



Gor Mahia coach Zdravko Logarusic has lamented the exit of influential midfielder Moses ‘Dube’ Odhiambo from the club.

Odhiambo, who was in splendid form in the 2012 season, left Kenya on New Year’s eve for the Middle East to join Oman outfit Salalah after the expiry of his contract at the FKF Cup and Top Eight champions.

Speaking to Gor’s official website from his native Croatia, Logarusic admitted that it will not be easy to fill the void left by Odhiambo, whose experience proved crucial in his side’s trophy haul last term.

“It (Odhiambo’s exit) will affect us in the beginning because he was so pivotal to us last season. But I can assure fans we will fix it in no time,” said Logarusic.

However, the Kenyan Premier League giants could soon source a replacement as they are currently tracking former Tusker midfielder Crispin Olando. Gor have so far recruited four players in the off-season.

They are Paul Kiongera from KCB; Israel Emuge from Kira Young (Uganda); David Otieno from Western Stima and Abbey Natty from Muhoroni Youth.

The club are also expecting the imminent arrival of Brazilian Giovanni Rodriguez. Logarusic is set to jet into the country next week to take charge of pre-season training.
