Nairobi - Gor Mahia head coach Frank Nuttall praised the spirit of his squad
despite losing to Azam FC in the final of the CECAFA Kagame Club
Championship on Sunday.
The reigning Kenyan champions have not won the competition in over 30
years and fell heart-breakingly close to break that trend in this
"The boys did a great job out there. They kept giving their best
performances and were it not for a few moments of lapse in
concentration, we could have won the ultimate prize," Nuttall said after
arriving back in Kenya.
"Contrary to what people think, we are not perfect. There are things that we must revisit. Things like set pieces.
"This year we just wanted to get past the group stages but the fact
that we fell out in the final doesn't make it any less painful.
"We could have won it on Sunday, but we didn't. The opponent won fairly and you've got to give them credit.
"Now we have the league title to defend and I hope the defeat will not affect the players much," he concluded.
K'Ogalo begin the second half of their Kenya Premier League season at
home against Ushuru on Wednesday August 12th and remain six points
clear at the top of the table despite having played three less games
than second-placed Ulinzi Stars.
