Abondo critical of media

13 May 2015, 12:20

Nairobi - Gor Mahia top scorer Victor Ali Abondo has criticised the media for exaggerating his stamp on his friend, Western Stima striker Ronald Okoth on Sunday.

Abondo insists it was an unintentional foul without any intention to hurt his opponent, and has lashed out at the media.

"I want to apologize for the tackle on Okoth which was not intentional and even after the match I was with him and he completely understood as a footballer such moments occurs," Abondo told SuperSport.

"I believe in discipline and fair play and my objective has always been to work hard and win all the balls fairly. However the sentiments from some pundits have been discouraging as it has been blown out of proportion."

A bemused Okoth felt the media was trying to make something out of nothing, saying: "I am surprised to hear different sentiments.

"Ali Abondo is a good friend of mine and he cannot injure me intentionally as some people are trying to purport. He just lost control and I was with him after the game and we laughed over the incident."
