Quizzed about his club’s preparation,Coach Fotso;
“We have our strength,we acknowledge the fact that our team is young and Gor Mahia is a Historical club with huge success especially in Kenya, but we have our chance in this tie, which is what makes Football interesting.”
“We have the responsibility to do it for Cameroon, we are representing Cameroon,our team may be young,but we have the fighting spirit, we have come along way,thanks to that and it’s a Cameroonian character which we must show against a Gor Mahia side with big names like Denis Oliech”.
