Gor Mahia Coach Carlos Vaz Pinto Named May Coach Of The Month


Gor Mahia head coach Carlos Vaz Pinto is the May Kenya Premier League coach of the month.

Pinto guided the defending champions to a one hundred percent record in the month, as they registered four wins in as many matches.

Gor began the month with a hard fought 1-0 win over league returnees Nairobi City Stars at the Utalii grounds before humbling Sofapaka 2-1 at their backyard.

The record champions narrowly edged Vihiga United 1-0 in their third match of the month played at the Mumias Sports Complex and replicated similar score line in the last encounter against Wazito at Utalii.

Pinto beat KCB tactician Zedekiah ‘Zico’ Otieno to the award with AFC Leopards coach Patrick Aussems closing the top three bracket.

Zico who was decorated as the December coach of the month led KCB to collect seven points out of a possible twelve so is Aussems, but the bankers had better goal returns.

The Portuguese becomes the fifth coach to be feted this season after Zico, Francis Kimanzi, Andre Casa Mbungo and Stanley Okumbi who were awarded in December, January, February and March respectively.

Pinto walks home with a customized trophy and Ksh 50 000 cash prize courtesy of the league sponsor.
