Scottish coach Frank Nuttall has finally handed Gor Mahia his resignation letter after leaving the country for Egypt to take over as the Zamalek assistant coach in the wake of a poor start to the season by the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) giants.
A statement on the Gor Mahia official website quotes chairman Ambrose Rachier confirming the receipt though from the tone of the letter sent by email, the chairman says the coach had made an advance plan to walk out on the club.
“Indeed we received Frank Nuttall’s resignation letter on Tuesday after reports surfaced that he flew to Egypt to join Zamalek,”
“ln the letter, he (Nutall) mentioned a number of reasons and it’s clear he had planned to leave many days before without telling anyone,” Rachier is quoted to have said.
He further revealed that the club has received a number of applications for the job with the assurance that the new coach to take over will be named in the next few days.
“Just after reports of Nuttall leaving Kenya hit the airwaves, we received several applications mostly from foreign coaches and hopefully, the club will get a good coach to take charge in the next few days,” he added.
