Reports indicate that Oktay had travelled to Turkey to take care of his ailing parents and is yet to return.
Oktay’s letter to Gor Mahia chairman Ambrose Rachier read in part, “Kindly accept my resignation as Gor Mahia FC head coach effective today, the sixth day of August 2019. As you are aware, the decision has been forced on me by the personal challenges I am facing here in Europe.
I wish to thank you and the entire club, including the fans for the opportunity you accorded me to manage this great club. I also wish you guys all the best in your forthcoming assignments.”
The man rumoured to be in line to succeed Oktay is Englishman Steven Polack. The 58-
Oktay’s resignation comes at a time when Kógallo is set to lock horns with Aigle Noir of Burundi in the CAF champions league on Sunday.
The Turk took the reigns in December 2018 and has seen a successful campaign at the club, winning 18th league title and making it to the quarters of the CAF Confederations cup.
