Gor Mahia coach Steve Polack announced after Sunday’s match against Zoo Kericho that he would traveling home.
“I have a flight to catch at the airport,” Polack told Goal after the team beat Zoo Kericho 1-0 at Afraha Stadium in Nakuru.
His trip back home sent alarm bells ringing as many Gor Mahia coaches have failed to return from overseas trips be it Logarusic or Dylan Kerr or Hassan Oktay.
But Polack says he is visiting his native home to see relatives.
“I want to visit my native home and see my family members. It has been long since I came here [in Kenya] and I know I am leaving the team in safe hands.” he said according to goal.com
His native home is the UK as opposed to Finland where he became a citizen.
Polack is unimpressed thus far and noted that the team must work on a number of issues.
“We have a number of things we need to work on during the international break because I want the team to come back even stronger. I was not very impressed with how we played against [Zoo Kericho] because it is not how we are supposed to play. We switched off completely and gave them room to take on us. We will rectify the mistakes and be ready for our next league assignment.” he concluded.
