Kenyan giants Gor Mahia have confirmed that coach Steven Pollack has left the club.
Pollack went for what the club termed as a ‘deserved holiday’ but looks set not to return with the K’Ogallo management led by Secretary General Samuel Ocholla confirming his resignation.
Pollack has revealed that the tough economic times that have been brought by the coronavirus hugely contributed to his decision to leave his role as coach.
“The club and I have come to a mutual agreement to terminate my contract due to the economic downturn and Coronavirus pandemic which is not only affecting Gor Mahia but also other clubs and businesses across the world,” read his later.
In response, the Club wished him well and thanked him for helping lead them to their 18th League title.
“We are in receipt of your resignation letter dated 8th October, 2020 as Gor Mahia manager/coach. Much as we regret this happening, we also respect the reasons that you have pointed out to occasion your action. As a club, we will miss you amongst us greatly, especially your impeccable coaching abilities and social cohesion and the excitement you brought the Gor Mahia fraternity as a whole.
Your time with us was momentous and fulfilling. We take cognizance of your achievement at our club; which was coloured by having our team declared the 2019/2020 Kenya Premiere League Champions for the 18th time in our country. We wish you would stay longer!
The Executive committee, management and our fans wish you all the best in your future endeavors, knowing so well that we shall forever share with you the K’Ogallo heritage and may you excel in making the beautiful game better wherever you are” read a letter by Ocholla.
