K’Ogalo have assigned team manager Frank Ouna to take charge for Sunday’s KPL Top 8 match since head coach and his assistant will not be available

Kenya Premier League champions Gor Mahia have appointed Frank Ouma to handle the side when they face Tusker in a Kenyan Premier League Top 8 match at Kinoru Stadium, Meru on Sunday.

For the first time, Gor Mahia will play without head coach nor his assistant when they battle the brewers’ in the knock-out competition.

Head coach Bobby Williamson is expected to travel out of the country on Saturday to attend his mother’s burial while assistant John ‘Bobby’ Ogolla is still admitted in hospital.

Williamson got news his ailing mother had died on Friday and has to travel for the burial. Deputy Secretary Ronald Ngala has revealed to Goal that they will not ask for the match to be postponed.

“We understand what the rules are in regard to postponement of matches and it does not apply in this situation. We have appointed Frank Ouna to be in charge on Sunday as we wait for two coaches to come back.

“We are confident that Ouna will perform and give club desired result. We will support him as office and want to ask fans to rally behind him especially on Sunday against Tusker.”
