Zedekiah Otieno will take charge of Gor Mahia as an interim coach after Dylan Kerr resigned on Thursday.
Otieno, the then assistant coach to Kerr will take full charge of the Kenya Premier league (KPL) champions.
According to Daily Nation, Club Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Lordvick Aduda said that the former Posta Rangers tactician will lead the club in the meantime as they prepare for the busy 2018/2019 season which kicks off with a Caf Champions League preliminary round tie against Malawi’s Nyasa Bullets.
Kerr resigned from his position as the club’s head coach on Thursday and is set to take up a new job elsewhere.
“We already have an assistant coach who has been preparing the team even before the Everton trip, he is even resumed training for preseason with them,” Aduda said.
“We’ve a pool of CVs that the technical committee will sit and come up with a shortlist but we hope to tackle it as soon as possible so that we’ve a new man at the helm sooner.”
This is the second time Zico has been handed the team on temporary basis in less than two years.
He was in charge while Brazilian Jose Marcelo Ze Maria was away June last year and led the team to the final of the SportPesa Super Cup in Dar es Salaam.
