Phillemon: Loss in Algeria is a wake up call


Assistant Captain Phillemon Otieno has apologised to all Gor Mahia stakeholders for the big loss against Belouizdad in Algeria on Saturday.

The team went down 6-0 in the first leg of CAF Champions League First Round and Phillemon says it was a big learning process. 

“On behalf of fellow players, l would like to apologise for the loss against Belouizdad. It’s football and we learnt our lessons…” 

“It’s a wake up call for us to pull up  if we want to achieve our goals for this season,” noted the Assitant Captain who led the team in the absence of injured Kenneth Muguna.

The travel weary Gor Mahia went four goals down at halftime before the Algerians completed the rout in the second half.

The team will have to produce biggest ever win in continental football to have any hope of progressing when we host the Algerians in the return leg in Nairobi on January 6.
