Coach Pinto set to rope in young players


Head coach Manuel Vaz Pinto is keen on giving young players from the Youth Team a chance to showcase their worth.

The lads will get a chance to work with the senior team in a Cup fixture scheduled for this coming Sunday against Congo Boys in Mombasa.

As per the coach’s word, the young players will be filling up the gap left by injured players and four senior players who are engaged in national duties – Kenneth Muguna, Cliffton Miheso, Tito OKello and Jules Ulimwengu.

“In the next few days we will call upon players from our Youth Team in order to make up for the spaces left by four senior players who will be with national teams and the injured players as we prepare for Cup match,” Pinto noted.

Commenting on the 3-1 win against Bidco United on Monday, Pinto says: “My players were committed, intense and played one of the best games…. Despite the initial disadvantage, we were able to turn the result around with quality in the game – always stronger than the opponent and an entirely fair victory for Gor Mahia.”
