Carlos Vaz Pinto wins May Coach of The Month Award

Gor Mahia head coach Carlos Vaz Pinto is the May Betking Premier League coach of the month. 

Pinto guided the defending champions to a one hundred percent record in the month, as they registered four wins in as many matches.  

Gor began the month with a hard-fought 1-0 win over league returnees Nairobi City Stars at the Utalii grounds before humbling Sofapaka 2-1 at their backyard. 

The record champions narrowly edged Vihiga United 1-0 in their third match of the month played at the Mumias Sports Complex and replicated a similar scoreline in the last encounter against Wazito at Utalii. 

Pinto beat KCB tactician Zedekiah ‘Zico’ Otieno to the award with AFC Leopards coach Patrick Aussems closing the top three brackets. 

Zico who was decorated as the December coach of the month led KCB to collect seven points out of a possible twelve so is Aussems, but the bankers had better goal returns.

The Portuguese become the fifth coach to be feted this season after Zico, Francis Kimanzi, Andre Casa Mbungo, and Stanley Okumbi who were awarded in December, January, February, and March respectively. 

Pinto walks home with a customized trophy and Sh 50 000 cash prize courtesy of the league sponsor.
