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.

"And the support they give us is almost like a physical force urging us on. We feel them always and they inspire us," added the Ugandan forward.

The 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 Chiefs.

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.
