Following their 1-0
defeat to Muhoroni Youth in the Top 8 Cup finals on Sunday 16 October 2016 at
the Nyayo National Stadium, Gor Mahia’s fitness trainer Sandro Onyango Fantoni
has apologized to their fans for not delivering the trophy.
K’ogalo were the favorites going into the clash but Kennedy
Rono’s 62th minute goal proved the difference in a clash that was
marred with K’ogalo fans’ displaying hooliganism.
However speaking to Futaa.com, Onyango stated that though he is very angry with the outcome, he apologizes
on behalf of the team as they look to put the disappointment behind and prepare
for the next match.
-This is soccer. We made a lot of chances at goal, we had
opportunities to score but we did not and we lost the match. It is called
soccer but now I’m very angry. Tusker is a good team and we hope we win the League
for the supporters because they are very good people and we play for them. We fight
in every match and this is the philosophy of Ze Maria that says in every match
we fight and today we fought but we did not win.
-I am very sorry for the
supporters because we did not win this trophy and we hope we win the league and
the supporters know that we fight and we will do so to win the League.
