Gor Mahia sack coach Nuttal after forcing him to take paycut

05 February 2016, 13:03

Nairobi - Gor Mahia have sacked head coach Frank Nuttal after forcing him to take a paycut.

The Star reported that Nuttall was shown the door after he refused to have his salary reduced by 50 per cent.

Nuttal said that a contract he signed when he was hired in September 2014 stated he was to get a 10 per cent pay increase from January 1 2016.

Nuttal noted in a statement on Thursday evening that in firing him, the club's executive committee failed to honour the contract.

"The executive committee of the club terminated my contract despite the fact that it was to expire on January 1, 2017," he added. 

Nuttal led Gor Mahia to the win the 2015 Kenyan Premier League title unbeaten. The club won the title three years in a row, two under his watch.

A report on Soka reiterated further.

“The executive office of Gor Mahia has terminated my contract today, 4th February 2016 via a letter to my lawyer Gradus Oluoch and Co. Advocates. However, my contract was to expire on 1st January 2017. The reason for terminating my contract is because the executive committee of Gor Mahia wanted to reduce my salary by 50% whereas my contract clearly provided for a 10% increase of my salary from 1st January 2016,”he added.

Gor had forwarded a new contract to Nuttal at the close of the 2015 season, requiring him to take a pay cut that would have seen him earn KES 300,000. However, Nuttal had still not appended a signature to the new deal, which he was hugely against especially after his achievements with the club last season.

The Scottish tactician led K’Ogalo to the final of the CECAFA Kagame Cup, won the KPL unbeaten as well as winning the KPL Top 8 title. To him, he felt it was only logical to reward his efforts with the team and taking a pay cut was quite unappreciative of the club.
