Wellingtong: The injury dealt a big blow to me


Defender Wellington Ochieng’ has been out of football action since he sustained an injury in a league match against Posta Rangers in January.

Speaking to the Official Gor Mahia website, Ochieng’ revealed that it has not been easy for him bearing the fact that last year August, he suffered an injury in a Super Cup match against Bandari and after treatment and back to action – the same injury reoccurred in January.

“Honestly speaking, the injury dealt a big blow to me. I was enjoying a good run of my form, things looked bright only for me to suffer a reoccurrence of the same injury I had in August last year” said Ochieng’.

The defender who was in a jubilant mood while undergoing through his private training went ahead to say: “I am almost there… I am almost gaining full fitness, the feeling is awesome. I have missed playing. My physiotherapist is guiding me well just to ensure we get everything right.

 “If all goes well, I can promise the ever vibrant K’Ogalo fans that I’ll join efforts with my hard working teammates to ensure we deliver more trophies.”

With the Covid-19 pandemic ravaging the world, Ochieng’ had this message to pass across: “Covid-19 is a deadly virus – at least from what we’ve seen happen across the world and back here at home. It has brought the world to a standstill. I want to ask everyone out there to take care, follow government guidelines and keep safe.”

Ochieng’ is still under the strict observation of his physiotherapist who is monitoring his training as he awaits further check-up before he is cleared to resume full training.Attachments area
