Williamson will replace Croat Zdravko Logarusic, who was sacked by the club’s top management for allegedly absconding duty.

“We have appointed Williamson as the next Gor Mahia coach on a two year contract. Bobby has a good experience working in Africa having handled Uganda Cranes for the last five years.

“We expect the coach to arrive in Nairobi on Tuesday and thereafter, we will unveil him to the media before he (Williamson) will be allowed to meet with the squad,” said Rachier.

Rachier added, “The management has been working round the clock since the post was declared vacant and we are proud to finally have a replacement in Bobby.”

Williamson was in Nairobi on Thursday and held talks with Gor Mahia hierarchy. The coach returned to Kampala immediately after the talks.

“It is true I met Gor Mahia officials in Nairobi and we discussed my intended move to the club. It would be a pleasure to work with the club which is one of the biggest in Kenya,” Bobby said.

“Gor Mahia is a top club with a massive following and any coach would be interested to be part of that family. I have been following keenly the club’s activities while in Uganda and I know they won a double and were on the verge of winning the league last season.”
