Francois Omam Biyik once famously left Diego Maradona in tears, and the former striker now fears Ugandan forward Dan Sserunkuma has the potential to seek revenge for the former Argentinian national.

The former Cameroon international, who scored the lone goal to enable the Indomitable
Lions defeat Argentina 1-0 in the opening match of the 1990 World Cup staged in Italy, arrived in the country on Wednesday evening, hoping to lead Gabon outfit US Bitam to victory against Gor Mahia.

The two teams lock horns in the first leg of the preliminary round of the African Champions League competition at the Nyayo Stadium starting 4pm Saturday.

“That stocky, dreadlocked striker is the pulse (of that team),” the bullish Bitam coach, who scored more than a century of goals during a 14-year professional stint that saw him turn out for Olympic Marseille, Rennes and Cannes in the French top flight said yesterday soon after arriving in Nairobi.

Meanwhile full match videos of US Bitam are available on youtube. Hopefully Gor Mahia have studied them and know what to expect.

Security in Place

Gor Mahia and AFC Leopards have put in place elaborate security measures ahead of this weekend’s continental fixtures.

Gor will be up against Gabonese side US Bitam in an African Champions League preliminary round tie tomorrow at 4pm at Nyayo National Stadium while AFC Leopards will entertain Ethiopia’s FC Defence at the same venue on Sunday.

In an interview with the Daily Nation Sport, Gor Mahia’s deputy secretary general Ronald Ngala said that more than 200 policemen on horseback from the regular and administrative wings have been mobilized for the match.

Tickets for the match will retail Sh1000 for the VIP stand while the terraces tickets will go for Sh300. The Gabonese, who are putting up at the tranquil Hill Park Hotel, held their first training session at City Stadium Thursday.
