Brazilian, Briton top Gor Mahia’s wish list for new coach

Brazilian coach Robert Oliveira Goncalves do Carmo is favourite to be named Gor Mahia coach, Nairobi News understands.

The Kenyan champions suffered a setback on Thursday when English coach Dylan Kerr resigned with immediate effect, barely three weeks to the start of the 2018/2019 Kenyan Premier League season.

Besides Oliviera, it is understood that Gor Mahia are also looking at Kerr’s compatriot Jamie Day, who currently handles the Bangladesh national team.


Luc Eymael, who recently quit top South African club Free State Stars, has also been mentioned even though the Belgian trainer was recently quoted as saying K’Ogalo might not be able to afford him.

Zedekiah ‘Zico’ Otieno, who served as Kerr’s assistant last season, is also in the frame albeit as a rank outsider.

Zico is expected to hold brief as head coach in the meantime and could even handle the team in the opening match of the Caf Africa Champions League against Malawians Nyasa Bullets in Nairobi on November 27.
