Gor Mahia deservedly won the SportPesa Premier League (SPL) title on Wednesday with two matches to spare after the 1-1 draw against Vihiga United after close challengers Bandari also failed to beat Mathare United on the same day.
This is Gor Mahia’s third consecutive SPL title and also a record 18th league crown and that has clearly shown they have no match on the local scene.
It is big challenge for the other teams to find a way of improving so that they can rise to Gor Mahia’s standards, otherwise the league will continue to be a one team show.
Gor Mahia have certainly proven themselves to be the best on the local scene with the three titles in a row and deserve to have the trophy for keeps.
The Kenyan champions had a depth in the squad that allowed them to compete well and the coach could rotate his players even his key men were injured. A case in point is when lethal forward Dennis Oliech was sidelined for six weeks and the team was able to go on and pick points without him.
Gor Mahia also looked motivated all throughout the season inspired by the victories picked at the continental level.
Also a passionate fan base also kept the club going and rising up again every time they fell. The fans have remained the biggest motivation for the players as they also demand more from them.
At it looks, other clubs will have to work harder if they want to catch up with Gor Mahia and the earlier they do it, the better for them and Kenyan football. As it is Gor Mahia will continue to dominate local football for the foreseeable future.
