Former Kenyan international Boniface Ambani who also turned out for AFC Leopards and Oserian FC in his heyday had earlier intimated to futaa.com that the current Kenyan Premier League (KPL) campaign is a three horse race, the most likely winner set to come from one of the top three.
Jerim feels otherwise
However, Gor Mahia goalkeeper and captain Jerim Onyango, who steered his side to an impressive 3 – 1 win over KCB on Sunday 8 July to register their sixth straight game without defeat, feels otherwise.
Jerim acknowledges that the former Harambee Stars forward has a right to his opinion as one of the key stakeholders in the country’s football but adds that Gor Mahia should not be ruled out as yet since they still have many games to play and are not too far from the top three sides.
-Ambani was a great player during his time and is a big name in the Kenyan football circles who has much experience in the KPL and as such has the right to pass his opinion in such matters but I don’t share his sentiments.
-We are working harder and harder everyday and are more determined to rise as high as possible so if we were to be judged let it be when the season comes to a close; no one should rule us out as yet because there are still many games to play and we are not too far from the top three, he told futaa.com.
Gor Mahia is placed sixth on the 16 team log with 26 points, ten adrift of leaders Tusker after 17 matches.
