Gor Mahia midfielder Kenneth Muguna has expressed his delight at the possible resumption of the BetKing Premier League that is expected to take place this weekend.
Speaking a few moments after taking his covid-19 test that was rolled out by the country’s football organizing body – Football Kenya Federation – in preparation for the league’s restart, the former Gor captain could not hold his excitement towards the resumption of football action in the country in what will be a little over fifty days when the games kick off on Friday.
“I think it means a lot, finally we have a smile back on our faces. We have missed playing and I think this is a big step for the return of the games and we hope that we will start playing as soon as possible,” he remarked.
Since the ban on sporting activities on March 26th, players and clubs all over the country had been forced to resort to virtual and personal training routines in order to stay in shape ahead of possible sports resumption any time. The former Western Stima man however noted that the new normal was not as enjoyable as the normal ways of training together.
“Training individually is never fun, but when you have your friends around it is not boring anymore. I think the mood is great and we are just hoping that the league can start as soon as possible,” he said.
Muguna and his Gor Mahia side currently find themselves in a race to catch up with the rest of the leading pack. The green army currently sits in 8th position on the log on 19 points, fourteen adrift log leading Tusker. Gor’s first game when the league resumes will be against Nairobi City Stars on Sunday, May 16th.
