Gor Mahia CEO Lordvick Aduda has assured fans that coach Polack will be returning on December 30. There have been fears after Polack himself stated that he was unsure of his future.

Additional reporting from the Nation

Kenyan Premier League giants Gor Mahia have dispelled rumours that coach Steven Polack, who left the country on Sunday evening for his native England for Christmas holiday, will not return to the club in a week’s time as expected.

The club’s CEO Lordvick Aduda has urged K’Ogalo faithful to be calm, saying the coach would be back on December 30 since he still has a two-year contract with the club.

“Polack will certainly be back and we are not worried about that. Why should it be an issue when the coach leaves to join his family for Christmas? He has contract with us and unless he tell us otherwise, he is still our coach and we expect him back on Monday,” said Aduda.

Before travelling, Polack oversaw K’Ogalo’s 3-0 win over Kisumu All Stars 3-0 in a Kenyan Premier League match on Sunday, a result that put Gor Mahia back at the summit of the standings with three matches in hand.

Speaking to Nation Sport on Sunday before departing, Polack said his assistant Patrick Odhiambo will be in charge of their league match against Posta Rangers at Narok Stadium on December 29.

“I a m going home for holidays and my assistant Patrick Odhiambo will take charge of the team. I will be back on December 30 to continue with my duties but in case of anything, I will personally communicate my decision to the club management,” Polack said, raising fears that he may not be back to continue with his duties as Gor Mahia’s coach.

Yikpe officially joins Yanga

Ivorian striker Gislain Yikpe has completed his move from Gor Mahia to Yanga Sports Club, the club confirmed on Monday.

The club through its website confirmed the signing of the Ivorian who unceremoniously left financially crippled K’Ogalo last week.

“Striker Yipke Gnamien will join the rest of Yanga squad in Mbeya tomorrow (Tuesday) after reaching an agreement with the club. We can confirm that he has passed the medical test,” said the statement from the club.

Despite joining the squad for their pre-match training ahead of their league match against Mbeya City, Yikpe and four other new signings will not feature for their new club.

The Ivorian might however make his debut against Tanzania Prison FC on Thursday.

Gor Mahia had signed Yikpe from SC Gagnoa in July as a replacement for Rwandan hitman Jacques Tuyisenge, who had joined Petro de Atletico of Angola.
