Six foreign coaches have so far shown their interest in replacing Johnathan McKinstry as Gor Mahia head coach. McKinstry will be leaving Gor at the end of the season following an agreement with Zambian national team.

According to the news that emerged last week, McKinstry would be taking charge of Zambia in the forthcoming rounds of the world cup qualifiers against Gabon and Sychelles.

The Gambia national team are in the same qualifier group with Kenyan national team Harambee stars, this years AFCON winners Ivory coast and Burundi.

According to Gor Mahia vice chairman Francis Wasuna, as soon as it emerged that McKinstry was in his sunset days at the club, applications from far and wide begun to trickle in.

The administrator also revealed that out of the six tacticians who had expressed the desire interest, two have previously worked in the Kenyan premier league.

Former AFC Leopards coach Patrick Aussems and former Gor coach Hassan Oktay, who achieved remarkable success with the club, are some of the trainers who are linked with the job at Gor.

The sad part is there is no local coach have applied for the hot seat at Gor Mahia. The most successful club in the country.

“We have received six applications so far from the foreign coach but we cant reveal their identities for now. two out of the six have worked in our league before. None of the local coaches have applied for the job,” Wasuna said.

McKinstry is the former Uganda national team coach who joined Gor in July 2022 and he has helped the club to win the FKF title last season. He is also on the last touches to win his second league cup this season.
