Ocholla says that, with ‘Zico’ alongside Brazilian Ze Maria, Gor Mahia will be able to easily reclaim league title from Tusker in 2017.

“‘Zico’ is a coach, who understands Gor Mahia very well having been with them in the past. I think the club made the right decision to hire him back and I can confidently predict their victory by the end of the season,” he told Goal.

Gor Mahia beat Muhoroni Youth 4-1 in a friendly match played on Saturday. That was ‘Zico’’s first match on the touchline since his appointment.
