Former Gor Mahia Head Coach Frank Nuttall has expressed remorse after being sacked as assistant coach at Egyptian side Zamalek SC.

Nuttall together with his head Alex McLeish were shown the door barely 57 and 65 days in charge of the club respectively due to what the bosses described as unconvincing style of play from the Egyptian giants.

Speaking to the club's Youtube channel, Nuttall said he would have wished to stay longer whilst thanking the entire Zamalek fraternity for their hospitality. He also extended his gratitude to the club President for a mutual agreement after termination of his contract.

“I would just like to say goodbye to Zamalek SC and all the friends I met here in Egypt. I really enjoyed my time here and would have liked to be here longer to take the team to the last eight of the Champions League but wish them very well in the tournament,

“I would like to express my thanks to everybody I worked with, the board, directors, players and fans of course and wish them success too. It was a great time working here in Egypt and I look forward to a new challenge. I am sure the team will get success,

Four titles

“I thank the President for an easy transition in dealing with my contract. We had a good mutual agreement and thank him very much,” a visibly remorseful Nuttall added.

Nuttall joined Gor in September 2014 signing a three month contract that was extended to two years in January 2015. During his time at the club, he steered the club to four titles; the DStv Super Cup, two KPL titles and the KPL Top 8 and took the club to the final of the CECAFA Kagame Cuplosing 0 – 2 to Tanzanian side Azam FC.

He was named the KPL Coach of the Year during the 2015 Footballer of the Year Awards (FOYA) in December 2015.
