- Gor Mahia coach Steven Polack has confessed the latest extension of curfew for sporting activities and social gatherings in Kenya will affect the club’s plans for the coming season.
K’Ogalo was issued the ticket to represent Kenya in the continental Caf competition slated to kick off in September, meaning Gor has to prepare for the coming event.
With the extension of the curfew of sporting activities and social gatherings for another 30 days, the British coach has now revealed that it will affect his plans to prepare the team well ahead of the competition.
“The latest curfew has really affected my plans, in terms of what I wanted the team to achieve before the Caf competition starts in late September,” Polack said.
“It means the team cannot start pre-season training now until August 7 and remember, the competition will start after a few weeks then, it will be difficult for my team and players to display the game I want. The curfew has definitely affected my plans,” he added.
The British tactician cries foul that it is a very difficult situation and uncertainty whether the curfew will be lifted after August 7.
He posed, “When do you get time to gauge your new players if you sign any?”
The British coach further revealed that he will travel to his home in Finland to check on his family when international flights resume despite his love for football.
“I will go home when the flights resume, it doesn’t matter, I have to go home and check on my family, I miss them anyway, my family was supposed to come to Kenya in the summer but because of Covid-19 they could not travel.” Polack continued.
On whether he will come back in time for the league resumption, Polack answered: “I am hoping so, I just want to spend some quality time with my children because they were supposed to come here in summer but because of the situation we could not control, it did not happen anyway.”
