Roberto Landi is the latest coach to apply for the vacant role at Gor Mahia.

The Italian tactician, who currently handles City of Lusaka in Zambia, has joined the race to succeed Briton coach Dylan Kerr, who resigned from the Kenyan champions to take over at Black Leopards of South Africa.

Gor Mahia CEO Omondi Aduda has revealed to Goal that Landi sent his CV on Wednesday. “The number of coaches, who want to handle Gor Mahia is growing by every minute. I just received the CV of Landi, who is based in Zambia with City of Lusaka. We are looking at all the applications before we hand them over to the technical committee for the vetting process.

“As at now, the club will be under coach Zedekiah Otieno. He is training the boys and we want to give him the support he deserves. We will strive to get a foreign coach for the team before the league kicks-off on December 8.”

On Wednesday, former AFC Leopards coach Luc Eymael pulled out of the race leaving Rayon Sports coach Roberto Oliveira Goncalves and Pieter De Jongh as among the clear favourites to land the job.

Landi, who once handled Liberia national team, was a goalkeeper trainer with the United States of America national team between 1990 and 1994. He has also coached in Italy, Romania, Libya, Georgia, Lithuania, Scotland, and Qatar

Landi played for South Africa giants Kaizer Chiefs, Piacenza, Modena, Siena, and Major Soccer League side Vancouver Whitecaps FC and New York Cosmos.
