Gor Mahia today provided the complete list of 8 new players who have joined the squad for the 2018-2019 season. The eight are:
Erick Ombija , Castro Ogendo , Erisa Sekisambu (Vipers SC), Geoffrey Ochieng (Western Stima), Shafik Batambuze (Singida United), Kenneth Muguna (FK Tirana), Nicholas Kipkirui (Zoo FC) and Pascal Ogweno (Kariobangi Sharks).
Wesley Onguso and Kevin Omondi have been released. Omondi’s form dipped significantly last season after what seemed like a brilliant start. It appeared he was on his way to regaining the form that saw him called up to the national team at age 19.
Despite earlier stating that Zedekiah Otieno will be given the reins as the full time coach, Chairman Ambrose Rachier has reversed course after having received numerous applications .
“We have 53 applicants as of yesterday (Sunday); some have coached in Kenya and some have never stepped foot in Kenya.” said Rachier to goal.com
Rachier now says the club is screening multiple applicants for the position.
“The panel of experts will have to do the vetting but I can state that we’ll have to consider experience, possibly in Africa football and the language ability of the candidate for ease of communication with the players.”
