Kenya premier league champion Gor Mahia has reported that they will unveil Portuguese coach Carlos Manuel Vaz Pinto as their head coach.
Accorsing to Daily Nation, Pinto will lead the club for the next two years and is expected to jet into the country on Sunday.
Pinto will be taking over from Brazilian tactician Roberto Oliveira who was sacked.
Vaz Pinto has previously coached St George of Ethiopia and Angolan club Clube Recreativo Desportivo do Libolo. He also had a short stint at FC Famalicao Under-23 team in Portugal from September 2019 to June 2020.
It’s still not clear why Posta Rangers coach Sammy ‘Pamzo’ Omollo – who led Gor in Caf Champions League matches against APR of Rwanda and CR Belouizdad of Algeria will go.
Gor has been paired with Napsa Stars of Zambia in Caf Confederation Cup play-offs with K’Ogalo hosting the first leg on February 14 before travelling to Zambia for the second leg on February 21.
