Gor Mahia captain Harun Shakava admits the 2018/19 season will be tough for the Kenyan champions.
The seventeen-time Kenyan Premier League champions will be fighting to defend their crown and at the same time compete in continental assignment. K’Ogalo have already suffered a blow even before the season starts with coach Dylan Kerr leaving to handle Black Leopards of South Africa.
Shakava however, says the team will fight harder in order to register positive results and continue shining. “Teams are prepared to offer stiff competition and we should be ready for that; in short it will not be easy for us and we should be prepared. When you are a champion, expect things to be harder and we should be mentally stronger from the word go.
“For the fans, continue supporting us, we will give absolutely everything on the pitch to ensure we post positive results,” Shakava told Goal.com.
Gor Mahia will start their season on November 28 when they host Nyasa Big Bullets from Malawi in the first leg of Caf Champions League.
