Andreas Spier Appointed as Gor Mahia New Coach

Gor Mahia Football Club, commonly also known as K’Ogalo, is a football club based in Nairobi, Kenya. They have won the Kenyan Premier League a record 19 times, and have also won the FKF President’s Cup a record 11 times.
Kenyan Premier League giants, Gor  Mahia, have appointed experienced German tactician Andreas Spier as their new head coach.
The record Kenyan champions made the announcement on their official website early Tuesday.
“We are pleased to announce Andreas Spier as our new head coach,” the club said the terse statement.
Spier, who is remembered for his stint as a no-nonsense former Football Kenya Federation technical director, will be deputized by the much-travelled Michael Nam.
The German fills the role only a day after Ugandan tactician Paul Nkata had been appointed on an interim basis. Nkata’s appointment was, however, revoked following a countrywide uproar.

The Ugandan was at the helm of Kakamega Homeboyz when the club was caught up in a match-fixing scandal that left four of their players sanctioned.
The changes come exactly three days after the club axed  Briton Mark Harrison and his assistants Sammy Omollo.
Harrison and his team paid the price following a string of poor results in their recent matches, including the embarrassing 3-0 loss to Posta Rangers.
Despite all their documented financial struggles, Gor are only six points adrift of surprise league leaders Kakamega Homeboyz. (Credit the star.co.ke)

 

Gor Mahia Short History

Gor Mahia Football Club (/ˌɡɔːr ˈmjə/ (audio speaker iconlisten)), commonly also known as K’Ogalo (Dholuo for ‘”House of Ogalo”‘), is a football club based in Nairobi, Kenya. They have won the Kenyan Premier League a record 19 times,[1] and have also won the FKF President’s Cup a record 11 times. They are the only team from Kenya and the CECAFA region to win an African continental title to date, having won the African Cup Winners’ Cup in 1987 after previously reaching the final in 1979.
The club was formally established on 17 February 1968 as a merger of Luo Union and Luo Sports Club (also known as Luo Stars) and won the national league at the first time of asking. Some of its original leaders were politicians Tom Mboya and Jaramogi Oginga Odinga. However the club was founded much earlier, in the 1915, and participated intermittently in local tournaments in Western Kenya. Various groups used this name at different times.
