    The tactician is open to making a return to the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) in the new season after staying out of coaching for over three years. He is proven and tested, having helped Tusker to dominate domestically and the East Africa region, before replicating the same with APR of Rwanda. 

  • Francis Kimanzi of Mathare United.

    He recently handed in his resignation to quit Mathare United, citing engagements with the Harambee Stars. However, Goal understands he walked out of the club because of frustrations associated with finances. At Gor Mahia and with all those resources at his disposal, and Kimanzi can help the team to greater heights.
  • William Muluya of Kariobangi Sharks.

    When he came into the limelight, a few people expected him to shine, but in two years he has delivered the FKF Shield Cup and the SportPesa Cup with his youthful side at Kariobangi Sharks. Was narrowly eliminated from the Caf Confederation Cup last season by Asante Kotoko and can fit in to replace Hassan Oktay at the Kenyan champions.
  • Bandari FC Coach Bernard Mwalala.

    He first helped steer Nzoia Sugar to earn promotion the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) and after a relatively good season, Bandari snapped him up. In the two seasons, he has helped the Dockers to finish second in the league, as well as winning the FKF Shield Cup. His direct football is working well and might be the right man to win titles with Gor Mahia.
  • Posta Rangers coach Sammy Omollo.

    The former international has always performed when given a free hand. In 2011, he was in charge of Tusker when they won the Kenyan Premier League title, and also managed to transform Sony Sugar to one of the best sides in Kenya when he had a stint with the Awendo-based side. He has had short stints abroad as well and his massive experience will be an asset for Gor Mahia.
