Gor Mahia defender Wellington Ochieng is set to miss the remainder of the KPL season through a knee injury.
Ochieng injured his knee during a CAF Confederations Cup game against DC Motema Pembe in November 2019. He initially showed signs of recovery.
An MRI scan carried out on the knee showed that Ochieng should undergo surgery, Head Coach Steven Pollack has confirmed.
“He has been under orientation and showed good recovery progress but he still has pain on his knee. We are keenly monitoring his progress,” Pollack said.
Team doctor Opiyo Patrick confirmed that Ochieng was subjected to Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and he recommended surgery.
‘’He has been undergoing physiotherapy but every time he trains, he complains of further pain. So I advised him to go for the MRI scan and from the resultant report, he has to undergo surgery. We don’t want him to play now until he is fully recovered after the surgery,’’ said Opiyo.
Philemon Otieno has fully recovered from injury and is available for selection.
Gor Mahia sit top of the Premier League table with 54 points after 23 games.
