Following their disappointing 2-0 loss at home to Moroccan outfit Renaissance Sportive de Berkane, Gor Mahia head coach Hassan Oktay has blasted African governing body CAF but still holds hopes of progression to the semi-finals of the Confederations Cup.
K'Ogalo produced a lethargic home performance as they went down to goals in either half from an own goal by Francis Kahata own and a Bakr El Helali strike. Gor Mahia broke their six-game home winning streak with the loss and will face an uphill battle when they take on Berkane in the second leg on Sunday 14th April at the Stade Municipal de Berkane.
Speaking in a press conference after the loss against Berkane, Oktay was hopeful of progressing to the final four but blasted CAF for their lengthy suspensions on his players, "You know I believe anything is possible in football, the problem is what CAF did, people are telling me that the CAF Chairman is a guy from Berkane but I don't know. (Shafik) Batambuze has got two yellow cards he should be out for one game but he got two games off, (Jaques) Tuyisenge two yellow cards he should be one game off, of course, this kind of decisions affect us."
