Gor Mahia deputy coach John Bobby Ogolla has stated that he is stepping down from the role after serving the 15- time Kenyan Premier League (KPL) champions for four years, and previously ten years as a player.
The former Harambee SDtars defender made the announcement to the players after their GOTv Shield semi final loss at the hands of Nakumatt FC on Wednesday 9 December at the Kasarani Stadium.
In his parting shot, posted on the club’[s website, the coach thanked the club’s management for the chance to train one of the country’s most successful clubs. He also had gratitudes for the playing unit for their support and the fans for pushing the team and called on them to continue in the same way.
“I sincerely appreciate these young players for the time we’ve worked together. The respect and smooth relationship that existed between us will leave a permanent mark in my heart forever. They considered me as a father and l handled them like my sons with the respect they deserve.
“No fan base is amazing like the Gor fan base and they are one of the main wheels that roll Gor as a club. The support they offered me as a player and as an assistant coach can’t be quantified only God can reward them. They should continue with the same spirit to see the club where it should be,” he is quoted on the club’s website as having said.
