Nuttall looks to the positives

12 August 2015, 14:38

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 year's tournament.

"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.
