Gor Mahia have agreed with a Kenyan premier League coach Sammy ‘Pamzo’ Omollo to be the stand-in coach for the team against APR of Rwanda in a CAF preliminary tie.
This is coming after CAF disqualified head coach Roberto Oliviera for ‘lack’ of required qualification (as per CAF guidelines) to lead the team in any CAF assignment – according to new regulations.
The latest development has been confirmed by Chairman Ambrose Rachier who stated that plans are also underway to equalize coach Roberto Oliviera’s qualifications at CAF.
“We have settled on Sammy Omollo to be the stand in coach for the team in Rwanda as we try to sort out the current coach’s (Roberto) issue with CAF. That means, Sammy will lead the technical bench as Roberto is not allowed to be on the touchline until the issue is sorted” noted Rachier.
The team is set to jet out this week for the CAF Champions League preliminary clash agsints APR in Kigali.
