Reigning Kenyan League Champions Gor Mahia has announced that head coach Dylan Kerr has tendered in his resignation that takes effect immediately.
The British tactician, who guided the 17-time Kenya league Champions to group stages of the CAF Confederations Cup last season, has had his future shrouded with uncertainty and reports have been rife that his departure was imminent.
In what turned out to be his swansong, Kerr was in the dugout as K’Ogalo played in a historic friendly game against Everton at Goodison park on November 6.
The Kenyan giants were humbled 4-0 by the premier league side but conspicuously Kerr did not return to Kenya with the travelling contingent as expected.
Gor Chairman Ambrose Rachier said as quoted by the club official website’ As per his letter, he is going for greener pastures and I wish him well,’the statement reads in this part.
The 51-year-old, who led K’Ogalo to back-to-back league titles in 2017 and 2018, thanked the K’Ogalo fraternity for their support in his 17-month tenure.
“To players, all l can say is a big thank you for being amazing – everyone played their part with fun, enthusiasm, hard work and most of all belief in what l demanded for both on and off the field. I hope you continue having the vision l constantly told you and always remember no regrets,” Kerr stated in the letter.
Meanwhile, the club resumed training on Thursday amid player sit-down strike reports. They are preparing for a busy season that starts in November and their CAF Champions League fixture against Malawi side Nyasa Bullets in a fortnight.
The Kenyan giants are one time employers of Ugandans Daniel Mzee Sserunkuma, Godfrey Walusimbi, Khalid Aucho and currently left back Shafic Batambuze.
