No deal for Ogolla yet
Gor Mahia’s interim coach John ‘Bobby’ Ogolla is yet to sign formal engagement with the club.
The former Gor Mahia defender was appointed stand in coach on Monday after the club disbanded the entire technical bench headed by Anaba Awono (head coach) and Ken Odhiambo (assistant coach) for poor results in the Kenya Premier League (KPL).
Ogolla attended training on Thursday but declined to commit himself with the club insisting he would issue an official statement once the deal is signed and concluded.
“At the moment, I have just come to see the boys and give them encouragement. I know they are expecting much from me but for now, let us all focus on the big match set for Saturday,” said Ogolla.
Nicknamed the six million dollar man, Ogolla averred that it will be difficult taking over barely two days before the match against Ferroviario.”
“It is a very complicated situation we are in now but we have to contend with it and give our best. All we need is stay focused and remain committed to the course of qualifying to the next stage of the competition,” he said.
Ogolla told SuperSport.com that the pressure to deliver and win on Saturday match was very high and that is why he wants everything to be “cleared and formalized” before he takes over the team officially.
Club deputy secretary Ronald Ngala confirmed that both parties are yet to formalize the agreement, “It will be up to Ogolla to decide if he is impressed by our terms or not. We cannot force him, it will all depend with his demands.”
