Oboya admits difficult in breaking into Gor Mahia’s starting squad

The ex-international, who signed a six month loan deal with K’Ogalo during the June transfer, says he is working very hard to cement a permanent role

Former international Patrick Oboya has admitted the difficulty of trying to break into the first team of Kenyan Premier League leaders Gor Mahia.

But the midfielder says he is working extremely hard to be able to find a permanent place in the team.

"It has been hard to get my form back and with that being able to fit into the team. After being away for a long time due to injury it is normal to struggle but I am working hard to be able to get a permanent place in the team.

"The coach has told me that he wants to use me more next season and explained it is the reason he brings me on sparingly but nonetheless it is fun being back home," Oboya told Goal.

Oboya signed a six month deal with Gor Mahia but he remains non-committal on the future.

"After the end of the six months, it is difficult to say exactly what will happen. I could either go back to Europe or play locally. The KPL league is much more competitive than when I left and it would be great to play here.”

Oboya has also revealed that Gor Mahia have the best chance to win the title this season and need to take every game seriously going forward.
