Former Gor Mahia coach Nuttal eyeing Zesco United job

Former Gor Mahia coach Frank Nuttal has been linked to a move to Zambian club Zesco United, where he is reported to have submitted his CV.

The Briton will however compete for the position with former AFC Leopards coach Ivan Minnaert, Frenchman Didier Gomes Da Rosa, journeyman Tom Saintfeint and Ugandan Sam Timbe.

Nuttal boasts an impressive coaching CV in Africa have led Gor Mahia win two consecutive league in 2014 and 2015.

The UEFA pro licence coach also steered the club to second place at the 2015 regional Cecafa Club Championship in Tanzania.

He left Gor Mahia at the start of the just concluded season to join moneyed Egyptian giants Zamalek after a fallout with K’Ogalo’s leadership.

HIGH PERFORMANCE

Zesco United, which is home to Kenyan trio David Odhiambo, Jesse Were and Anthony Akumu, have been without a coach since the abrupt resignation of George Lwandamina in October.

Lwadamina left the club to join Tanzanian club Yanga SC after the Zambian side failed to offer him a contract extension.

Should Nuttal be handed the role at Zesco, he will be tasked with maintaining the high performance standards at the club.

Timu Ya Ziko have won the Zambia league title on the last two occasions, although it is increasingly likely the team will concede the current championship to Lusaka based rivals Zanaco.

Zesco also made it to the semi-finals of the Caf African Champions League this season with impressive results along the way, such as wins over Al Ahly, Asec Mimosas and eventual winners Mamelodi Sundowns.
