After the Portuguese tactician leaves, K’Ogalo will be under Omollo until the end of the season before the post is filled with a permanent occupant.
The Premier League team Gor Mahia, football in the Federation of Kenya, will be looking for a foreign head coach at the beginning of the 2021/22 season.
Purpose understands that the club’s hierarchy unanimously endorsed the idea of appointing an outside tactician to manage the club that will participate in the Caf Confederation Cup. Gor Mahia and Manuel Vaz Pinto reached a mutual agreement a few days ago to separate their paths, leaving the club under Sammy Omollo, who took over for the Portuguese coach.
What was said
“The idea of going to foreign experience is supported by the majority of the club’s key decision makers,” said a source close to the agreement. Purpose.
“We’ve had a lot of success with outside coaches and that does not mean we do not respect our local talents. If we hire a foreign coach, we must ensure that the technical bench consists of Kenyans who understand the club and its traditions. Local delegates have always helped their foreign counterparts to establish quickly and transition without so many problems.
“We can not say that all the success we have seen before can be attributed to foreign coaches. No, our Kenyan coaches have always played critical roles because they understand the league more deeply, they can easily talk to the players, given their understanding of Kiswahili, and they also understand our competitors much better.
‘But you know, Gor Mahia is a big club that has always competed against big African competitors, and in that regard we will go to coaches who bring something that we may not get in the local market.
“We had Frank Nuttall win the league with an excellent record. Dylan Kerr, Hassan Oktay and Steven Polack all won the league title. Vaz Pinto came and, despite the challenges we face as a club managed to win the Shield Cup against an AFC Leopards team that was pretty strong compared to the previous teams. ‘
In recent seasons, it has only been Gor Mahia who has hired foreign coaches to manage them, while AFC Leopards have alternated among local and foreign coaches.
