Just a few months after guiding Gor Mahia to their 15th league title, Scotsman Frank Nuttal has been relieved of his duties as the Gor Mahia head coach.
The coach replaced his countryman Bobby Williamson at the Gor Mahia helm in September 2014 and guided the team to the title in the year before repeating the feat unbeaten on his first full season in 2015.
The Scot stated in a letter to media houses that his contract, which was due to end on January 1 2017 was terminated because the club wanted to cut his wages by 50% while his contract stated that he would receive a 10% increment in January 2016 henceforth.
“The executive office of Gor Mahia has terminated my contract today, 4th February 2016 via a letter to my lawyer Mr. Gradus Oluoch and Co. Advocates. However, my contract was to expire on 1st January 2017. The reason for terminating my contract is because the executive committee of Gor Mahia wanted to reduce my salary by 50% whereas my contract clearly provided for a 10% increase of my salary from 1st January 2016,” the letter read.
Apart from the league win last season, Nuttal also led the club to win the KPL Top 8 title and saw the team through to the CECAFA Kagame Cup final.
