Uganda Cranes centre back Israel Emuge has saluted his Gor Mahia team mates for winning the 2013 Kenya Premier League title.

Gor Mahia were crowned league champions on Thursday 24 after the Football Kenya Federation Appeals Committee awarded the side three points for the September 1 abandoned game against Sony Sugars at Awendo.

That put K’Ogalo on 56 points ensuring that their lead at the top becomes unassailable even with three matches left.

Emuge who arrived at Gor Mahia in January from Kiira Young FC congratulated his team mates upon winning the title immediately after the communication was made.

“Congratulations to Gor Mahia and all my team mates for winning the title”, the ex-Express FC and KCC FC defender said.

“We deserve it after such a long and gruesome campaign”, he added.

Emuge has been influential at the heart of defence forming a rock solid centre back pairing with Kenyan defender Donald Mutosi.

Gor Mahia has conceded the fewest goals in the league (13) so far and much credit is owed to Emuge who on top of keeping things tight at the back has also managed three league goals. 

Gor Mahia is home to Cranes striker Daniel Sserunkuma, Ugandan Ivan Anguyo and is coached by ex-Uganda Cranes Coach Bobby Williamson. The title is the club’s first since 1995.
