BY KORIR JUMA,NAIROBI,10TH,OCT,2020-Kenyan champions Gor Mahia have acquired the services of Brazilian Roberto Oliveira as their new head coach taking over from Steven Polack.
Club Chairman Ambrose Rachier confirmed the arrival of the coach just less than 24 hours after announcing the departure of Finnish Polack who exited the club on mutual agreement.
“We are excited to announce the arrival of our new coach Roberto Oliveira from Brazil. He has had long coaching experience in Africa thus making him more conversant with African football. We think he will be a great asset in our quest to achieve better results on the field,” noted Rachier on the club’s official online portal
The new coach who faced Gor in a CAF competition three years ago while managing Rayon said he was looking forward to achieve the best in top-level competition.
“After leaving Rayon Sports, I got three offers to come back to Africa but I turned them down…. When Gor Mahia came knocking, I couldn’t turn it down because I like the club…. I like their style because I have seen Gor Mahia play many times and even had a tie against them in CAF competition. I am happy to be offered the chance to coach the team,” he said
Roberto says to achieve the best in Africa, collective effort is important: “Gor Mahia have won everything in local competition and it is about time to make a mark in CAF continental competitions. It will take the collective efforts of players, technical staff, and management to achieve what we want. I believe it can be done.”
