Musa: We are ready for derby

Gor Mahia defender Musa Mohamed said the team is ready for the task ahead and derby match against AFC Leopards at Nyayo stadium on Sunday is one of the assignments they are keen on.

The captain was speaking to  the official Gor Mahia  website in an exclusive interview after Friday's morning training at camp Toyoyo.

"We are ready for all assignments ahead of us and derby is just one of them. The team is in good shape and everything is running well in the training as desired. The team-work is good and all are itching for the match," said the centre back player.

In an animated mood,  which depicted the good team spirit in the squad,  Musa said being at the summit comes with a lot of pressure and it's that kind of good pressure because they need to stay alert all the times and offer their best in all matches to achieve what should be.

"Leading the table is good and it comes with pressure though we prefer such because that's one of the elements that push us to offer our best in every match to maintain the position. We are not complaining about the pressure  because that's what l will call the healthy pressure in a competition. We need it because we know what we want," he added.

Interestingly,  in both teams - (Gor Mania and AFC Leopards), Musa will be the only player to have played in more than 10 league derbies (13 to be precise), and he said the feeling is good because derbies are some of those matches any player would want to have a feeling of.

"I am surprised to have played in all those derbies. 13? Wow!  Time flies for sure but essentially,  it's a good feeling to be involved in a derby because any player would wish to play such a big local match," he added.

Gor Mahia will be facing AFC Leopards on Sunday for the third time this year. First encounter was in first leg league match where K'Ogalo walloped Leopards 3-0 before beating them again with the same scoreline  in SporPesa Super Cup in Tanzania.
