Steven Polack is expected to arrive on Wednesday to take charge of Gor Mahia.
"The club has decided to settle swiftly on [Steven] Polack as the task ahead is huge. We have a match on Sunday [August 11] and the team should also be ready for the league as soon as possible," the source revealed to Goal .
The 58-year old coach is expected to fill the gap left by Hassan Oktay, who has left the club after just one season in charge. Polack recently coached Ghanaian giants Asante Kotoko, and has also had stints at Berekum Chelsea.
The former RoPS and FC Inter Turku defender has also coached a number of Finish clubs, which include Inter Kutu, FC ESpoo, FC KooTeePee, AC Oulu and KPV.
Polack will be Gor Mahia's third manager in just under three years, as Dylan Kerr came, won the KPL, and left as did Oktay.
