Gor Mahia’s goalkeeping coach Mathew Ottamax Owino, is in hot water again. This time he has been formally suspended by the club.
Club official Judith Nyangi confirmed to goal.com that Ottamax did not make the Sudan trip due to the suspension.
“The coach complained on his (Ottamax) behavior of coming to work while smelling alcohol, a thing which resulted to his suspension. He was not available when we played Al Hilal in Sudan and will not be available when we play Onduparaka in Uganda.” she said.
Last year Ottamax was at odds with Ze Maria over a different issues. At the time it was reported that he had beeen fired by Ze Maria. Upon learning of the decision, Ottamax went on social media to rant about Ze Maria’s perceived incompetence.
The decision to fire Ottamax was reveresed by the club EC at the time.
This time Ottamax has taken a more calm demeanor, posting only one benign sentence on his social media pages which read”
“The more NANYAMAZA the more naona NIKIUMIZWA…..”
Ottamax is a former goalkeeper for Re Union FC, Gor Mahia, AFC Leopards and Harambee stars. He made his national league debut while still in secondary school.
