Sserunkuma thanks Gor fans
12 November 2014, 19:02
Nairobi - Gor Mahia striker Dan Sserunkuma said the support of the local fans contributed significantly to the club's success.
Gor successfully defended their Premier League title at the
weekend, after completing a comprehensive 3-0 victory against the Kenya
Revenue Authority KRA (Ushuru FC).
In the build-up to that fixture there had been
some anxiety, as Sofapaka, who could only muster a 2-2 draw against
Tusker during the final round of matches, were still in contention for
the league title before the weekend began.
However, Gor Mahia
showed tremendous grit under difficult circumstances and Sserunkuma
deserves a considerable amount of credit for that. The striker finished
the season with 16 league goals, which was also enough for him to secure
the so-called golden boot.
"When I get into the pitch, the fans
motivate me to perform because their presence is a constant reminder
that we must deliver results," Sserunkuma told the KPL website.

future still remains uncertain for Sserunkuma, primarily because he has
caught the attention of various clubs in the African football
fraternity. One of those clubs is South African football giant Kaizer
However, Sserunkuma refused to be drawn on the
speculation about his future, adding that now was still the time to
celebrate what had been achieved this season.
"It is barely a
week since we won the trophy and I am still enjoying being a champion.
Once I am done celebrating I will sit down with my agent and talk about
my career progress," he said.
