Gor's Jerim expecting tougher 2016
07 January 2016, 16:12
Nairobi - Gor Mahia captain Jerim Onyango has warned his teammates that 2016 will
be a tough year if they are to exceed last term's accomplishments.
K'Ogalo finished the Kenyan Premier League season unbeaten and as
champions. They also went on to win the Top8 tournament, reach the final
of the CECAFA Kagame Cup and semi-final of the GOtv Shield.
Onyango revealed the task the club usually sets itself at the
beginning of a new season is to surpass what they achieved the year
before, but admitted that would be a tough ask after what they managed
to accomplish in the last campaign.
"We have a bigger challenge this year; in 2015 we had a great season and we set the bar," he told Soka.
"Normally, we are not expected to do worse, we can only set higher
targets than the previous season's achievements and we know the
expectations so we will try our best to make it better.
"The most important thing is to go for training and matches in the right state of mind and to work hard for the team.
"Playing for Gor Mahia always comes with its fair share of pressure;
the urge to stay at the top is always there and as a player I want to
have a great season. I want to be a good leader to my teammates and I
want to help the team get what's best for it," he added.
Next week, Gor Mahia depart for Ethopia to take part in the St
George Commemoration Tournament as part of their pre-season
preparations ahead of the resumption of competitive action in February
when they begin their CAF Champions League campaign.
