Following the departure of Scotsman Frank Nuttall to Egyptian giants Zamalek SC, Gor Mahia are set to appoint a new Head Coach in the next few days, according to the club’s secretary general Ronald Ngala.

Ngala, when reached to confirm on the coach’s departure said there has not been an official communication from either party but revealed that the club will have to move on if at all the reports are true.

Move on

“We have not officially been informed of the development. We are also reading from social media the reports that he has left. The only follow up we have made is calling him but his phone is not reachable.

“We just have to move on, if at all the reports that he has left are true. That means we have to set sights on someone else to come in in a similar capacity as soon as possible,” concluded Ngala whilst denying reports linking them to Spanish tactician Antonio Flores.

Flores previously handled 16-time Azam Ugandan Premier League champions SC Villa from July – October 2015. The coach is currently in his home country with reliable sources intimating to Soka that he is awaiting a call from the Gor management.

“All I can say is that the coach is awaiting a call from Kenya to come for negotiations and if they agree, he'll join the club. He is ready and willing to take over at the club. He has the experience and technical know-how that Kenyan and in particular Gor fans would want to see,” the source told Soka.

Nuttall is set to slot in as Zamalek SC’s assistant coach, working under fellow Scotsman Alex McLeish. 

Flores, on the other side, has previously handled Polideportivo Aguadulce’s U16 side, a fifth level of competition in Spanish League Football.
