Following the less than stellar display in the 2017 pre-season matches, Gor Mahia are set to assess the technical bench with a view towards possibly making changes. According to a report on goal.com, Chairman Ambrose Rachier is a concerned man.
“We are going to plan on how to participate in the season. We’ll have a committee meeting next week to finalize on everything including changes in the technical bench (if there will be any).” said Rachier to goal.com
Gor Mahia have lost every pre-season game. Granted that they have been playing against difficult opposition. Onduparaka are in the middle of their season and Al Hilal are preparing for the champions league. But the loss to Thika United is difficult to explain.
Many Kogalo fans are not convinced by Ze Maria. Rachier himself stated last season that the team lost the league due to too many draws. This is the longest that Ze Maria has lasted in any team as a coach. He coached teams in the Italian third tier but those gigs lasted less than a year as did his stint with a top Romanian side.
In addition to Ze Maria, the Kogalo technical bench has other foreigners namely assistant coach Marco Aurellio from Brazil and trainer Sandro Fantoni who is Italian.
