Gor Mahia striker Benson Omalla has chosen to give a deaf ear to critics on his neck following his aborted loan spell at the Swedish Division One outfit of Linkoping City.

The teenage attacker says some of the stories about him have been fabricated but insists he will not be responding to any of them.

“People will talk but let them talk – I have read / heard a lot about my return, some of which are just created stories but am calm and focused,” he told the Gor Mahia website.

The former Western Stima man sealed a six-month long loan move to Sweden in May, but made an unceremonious return to K’Ogalo just weeks into his time at the Division One side.

“I am back… I have picked my lessons and l will strategize on how well to build my football career,” he added.

The teenage sensation cited frustrations about his playing position for his short stay in Europe, Gor Mahia head coach Carlos Manuel Vaz Pinto terming his quick  return a blessing owing to the congested list of FKF Premier League fixtures.

“Benson is one player who can help the team achieve its goals. He is a player who has potential but needs to be inserted in a team that is different from what the player knows,” the Portuguese tactician said.
