Former Kenya international Mathew Ottamax has moved from Nakumatt to former multiple Kenyan champions AFC Leopards as goalkeeping trainer.
Ottamax, who has also held the same position at Gor Mahia, said he was looking forward to working at the popular club.
“I have signed a contract with AFC Leopards for two years and I feel very happy. To me it feels like coming back home. It is also the beginning of a new journey for me and I feel very motivated and ready to start work,” he said.
“This year the club has set very high targets because of the good players that have been recruited, and I hope to offer some good contribution towards achieving those goals. We will be defending the GOtv Shield title and also fighting for the league title.” he said.
Ottamax replaces Erick Wasike, and joins a bench headed by coach Robert Matano with Gilbert Selebwa the team manager.
Ottamax’s decision to quit Nakumatt is believed to be influenced by the financial difficulties currently facing the club’s parent company.
The former Kenya goalkeeper joined Nakumatt in January this year after a fallout with the then Gor coach Marcelo Ferreira.
At Nakumatt, he helped tune former KCB and Gor Mahia custodian Sammy Okinda and Charles Ouma as first choice and reserve goalkeepers respectively.
