Former Uganda Cranes head coach Johnathan Mckinstry has been made the manager of Kenyan side Gor Mahia, ahead of the incoming 2022/23 season.

The 37 year old has spent over a year without a job, after his Cranes contract was terminated in April 2021 following a run of poor results.

The Northern Ireland International has signed a two-year contract and will be the K’Ogalo’s head coach at least until the end of the 2023/24 campaign.

The 37-year-old has succeeded German tactician Andreas Spier who parted ways with the club just after six months in charge.

During the 2021/22 season, Gor Mahia finished third on the 18-team KPL log with 58 points, eight points behind champions Tusker FC who gathered 66 points.

Gor Mahia are the record winners of the KPL with 19 titles to their name and Mckinstry will be expected to deliver the trophy straightaway.

Mckinstry has got vast experience coaching in Africa, besides Uganda Rwanda and Sierra Leone are the other national teams he has coached.
