Gor Mahia FC‘s Ugandan born Rwandese striker Meddie Kagere had the dream return to the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) champions, starting off his second stint on a scoring note as K’Ogalo secured a 1 – 1 draw with Kakamega Homeboyz on Sunday 10 July.
The striker left in Decemeber 2015, stayed clubless for the first six months of the year before sealing his return to the club and admits it eased a lot of pressure being able to score on his first match, after just 13 minutes.
Speaking to the official KPL website, Kagere said that walking to the pitch, he was unsure of how he would perform and a bit apprehensive but he prayed for a win for the team and a good outing for himself
“I was under pressure and I felt very uneasy even as I was walking into the field. I asked God to give the team a win, even if I wouldn’t score because I knew how much the club’s fans love to win.
“Scoring after just 13 minutes was therefore a great relief for me because it took a lot of pressure away from me. I began to feel more at ease with the ball and I even dreamed of scoring another goal,” he said.
Kagere however added quickly that the entire team, himself included, became complacent after that first goal which led to Homebozy getting their equalizing goal.
“The moment we went ahead, I felt comfortable and I think the same thing happened to the rest of the team. We relaxed especially in the second half and allowed Homeboyz back into the match,” he said.
