Williamson bids K'Ogalo farewell

25 August 2014, 13:22

Nairobi - Bobby Williamson bid Gor Mahia and their fans a fond farewell as he prepares for life with the national team Harambee Stars.

The tactician took over the K'Ogalo reins midway through last year before going on to lead them to their first Kenyan Premier League title in 18 years as they finished the campaign at the top of the table, ahead of Nairobi rivals AFC Leopards.

Gor are currently undefeated this term and returned to the summit this weekend after seeing off Sony Sugar 1-0, and Williamson was delighted to have ended his tenure at the club by clinching the three points.

"Gor has wonderful players and I hope they go ahead to win the league because it has a good bunch of players. I thank the chairman for having faith in me and giving me this opportunity to manage the club," Williamson said after the game.

"I also express my sincere gratitude to the players who made extra effort to go ahead and win the game today (Sunday)."

There had been reports Williamson was considering a dual role with Gor and the Kenya team, but the boss said that he preferred not to split his attention.

"I don't think I could stay any longer at Gor because I don't want to look impartial when selecting players for the national team," he continued.

"I would like to concentrate on national team and hopefully develop some talent and introduce academies but we have a lot of work to do.

"I will miss the fans that were always fantastic and crazy and I'm happy they behaved today which is a good thing because the club needs a sponsor.

"It's been tremendous though; I experienced some highs and lows but I can't complain because that's the experience in football."
