Football coach Melis Medo believes Gor Mahia should be crowned champions if the Kenyan Premier League ends prematurely.

Kenyan top-flight football is on break owing to the coronavirus pandemic and although KPL have set April 4 as the tentative return date, there are no guarantees the season will be played to the end. 

If the latter happens, the American states K’Ogalo should be crowned.

“[Gor Mahia] should definitely be crowned if the season is ended,” the former Wazito FC tactician told Goal.

“Seven points clear from second-placed Homeboyz and eight from Tusker. I mean it is tricky and it is a 90 minutes crazy bouncing ball game but I would leave that to Football Kenya Federation (FKF). I will vote Gor if it ends tonight. When it rains, it pours.”

The tactician is however impressed with the way second-placed Kakamega Homeboyz have played this season.

“I would love seeing Kakamega to the end. Great squad with great management and they are willing to fight to the last inch. It is never about the money; when you deliver in football, money comes. It is all about dedication from top to bottom.”

If Gor Mahia will be handed the title, it will be their 19th in history.
