Kenyan record champions Gor Mahia have appointed Brazilian coach Leonardo Martins Neiva “Leo Neiva” as their new head coach.

The Brazilian tactician has been appointed on a two year contract to replace former Cranes coach Johnathan and who recently left Gor Mahia to become the national team coach of Gambia.

The 21 time Kenyan champions have appointed the 46 year old Brazilian on an undisclosed period with reports suggesting a two year contract.

It should be noted that Neiva parted ways with Vipers SC in December last year six months after replacing Alex Isabirye.

The Venoms subsequently replaced him with Charles Livingstone Mbabazi.

Neiva has also previously managed at Tanzania Giants Yanga Africans and Sudanase Al-Merrikh.

While at Gor Mahia, Neiva will be deputized by another former Vipers coach Michael Nam Ouma who has been serving as McKinstry’s assistant.

Zedekiah ‘Zico’ Otieno also returns to the club and will also serve as an assistant coach alongside Nam Ouma.

Gor Mahia are also in advanced stages of signing Ugandan midfielder Pius Chris Akena as earlier reported by this website.
