Former Kenyan international defender Sammy Omollo feels Gor Mahia are still unrivalled in the country.
Despite giving a debut to four players and making a lot of changes to their first team, the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) champions stood tall and floored Bandari FC by a solitary goal to clinch the KPL Super Cup on Sunday.
It is for this reason Omollo believes Gor Mahia will still dominate domestically for another season.
“I did not expect this kind of performance from the team under transition. They played well and dominated Bandari who have not had major changes in their squad,” Omollo told Goal in an exclusive interview.
“Bandari are currently one of the strongest teams we have, but they still failed to beat Gor Mahia, I think they [Gor Mahia] have no challenge at all this season.
“Other teams struggle to get to their best when under transition, but we are seeing a different thing at Gor Mahia, and they will be stronger with more matches to come.
“Even the new players they have brought on board are fighting for the team because they understand the demands are at another level in the club. Despite the exit of their main sponsor [SportPesa], the team seems unaffected on the pitch.”
Gor Mahia used the match to prepare for their weekend's game against Aigle Noir of Burundi in the second leg of the first round of Caf Champions League qualifiers.
The Kenyan champions managed a 0-0 draw in the first leg played in Bujumbura and will need a win of any kind to progress to the next round.
