Gor Mahia tactician Manuel Vaz Pinto has been named the BetKing Premier League’s (BPL) Coach of the Month for the month of May.
The Portuguese tactician was feted on Tuesday after Gor’s morning training session at the Camp Toyoyo grounds. He led his team to a 100% record where they won all four of their matches in the month.
Gor began the month with a 1-0 win over Nairobi City Stars in the first game after the league’s resumption in mid-May and followed that up with a 2-1 upset of Sofapaka. Similar 1-0 wins over Vihiga United and Wazito closed out the month for the reigning Kenyan champions.
Pinto, who walks away with a personalized trophy and a KES 50,000 cash prize, beat KCB FC’s Zedekiah Otieno and Patrick Aussems of AFC Leopards to the recognition.
