Gor Mahia coach Carlos Manuel Vaz resigns.
Just six months after being appointed as Gor Mahia’s coach, Portuguese expert Carlos Manuel Vaz Pinto has left the club. The 47-year-old left the country on Thursday night, just five days after leading the club to the Betway Cup where K ‘Ogalo knocked out their AFC Leopards rivals in a post-match shootout at the National Stadium in Nyayo to win the right to represent the country. at the Caf Confederations Cup next season. Vaz Pinto’s departure follows a 2-1 loss to leader Tusker that saw K’Ogalo fall in the race for the title. They are now 11 points behind the Brewers in fourth place after 23 breaks. Gor Mahia treasurer Dolphina Odhiambo told Nation Sport they had agreed to part ways with Vaz Pinto after a meeting with the club’s central committee earlier in the week. Odhiambo said Assistant Coach Sammy ‘Pamzo’ Omollo will lead K’Ogalo in the remaining matches. “It is true that the coach has left and we have agreed on this matter. He left the club in good agreement,” said Odhiambo. On Thursday, he admitted that Gor will not be able to defend his title following Tusker’s loss. However, a club source told Nation Sport that the financial crisis at the K’Ogalo camp made it difficult to maintain Pinto’s salary and after the Betway Cup final the expert told the club’s management that he had found another job. Vaz Pinto joined Gor on January 10 after K’Ogalo parted ways with Brazilian Roberto Oliveira who lacked proper paperwork. This prevented him from leading the club in continental matches. Oliveira was at the club for two months before returning to his home country. In his short stint at Gor, Vaz Pinto managed to score nine league wins, five losses and three draws. Contacted, Vaz Pinto said: “I left the club but I will provide more information later. Wait,” he said.
