Former Harambee Stars head coach Jacob Ghost Mulee suggests that Gor Mahia, the defending champions, need to reinforce their squad to secure their position in the Kenya Premier League.Gor Mahia currently holds the second spot with 21 points, trailing behind Posta Rangers by one point after 11 matches, comprising five wins, six draws, and no losses.Ghost highlights Gor’s performance, especially in the goalless draw against Muranga Seal, expressing concern that they are not playing at their full capacity, which could jeopardize their title defense.
He emphasizes the importance of strengthening the squad for the second leg to enhance their game control and pursue back-to-back titles. Ghost acknowledges Posta Rangers’ impressive run but warns about potential financial challenges affecting their future performance.
Regarding Muranga Seal, Ghost considers them a surprise team with solid facilities, sponsorship, and an experienced coach, predicting they will pose a challenge to other teams.
Commenting on Tusker’s struggles at the tenth position, Ghost notes the eight-point gap from the league leaders but believes coach Matano has the capability to close it, especially with the shift of home games to Kenyatta Stadium, Machakos.
Ghost expresses concern about Sofapaka’s inconsistency and the managerial upheavals, urging teams to give coaches sufficient time to make an impact in the league. He emphasizes the need for club owners to understand football dynamics and avoid hasty decisions.
