Gor Mahia’s Marcelo Jose Ferreira has won the Coach of the Month award for March.
Ferreira, the first recipient of the award this season, was unanimously voted by the football committee of the Sports Journalists Association of Kenya after winning both his matches last month, the only coach to do so in that period.
The Brazilian coach was presented with a cash prize of Sh75,000 and a trophy at brief ceremony on Wednesday at Camp Toyoyo in Jericho, Nairobi. This was his second Coach of the Month award since entering the Kenyan Premier League last year. He received the same honours in October.
Said Ferreira: "I am thankful for this award. I didn't expect to win it because the league is very competitive and there are so many deserving winners in any given month. Last year's performance was only laying a foundation for us to perform even better this year, and I want the players to keep our targets in mind.”
