Long-serving Gor Mahia chairman Ambrose Rachier has announced that he will be exiting the club at the end of 2019 after being at the helm for a decade.

His exit will be 6 months earlier than the expected date of the club polls which is slated for June 2020.

During his tenure after replacing Erastus Okal, the club has recorded a number of league titles including two SportPesa Cup titles, two KPL Top Eight titles, four KPL Super Cups and two President’s Cups.

Rachier who has faced fierce criticism over his management has now challenged his detractors to have their chance at the club.

“I must leave Gor at the end of the year. I have not groomed my successor but will leave it to the members to decide.

It’s my very good wish to see my fierce critics come and take over and I wish they can be elected,” he said.

During his time at the club, Kogalo produced notable players who have proved themselves in the national team and boast of the highest number of local players in the squad bound to represent the country in the Africa Cup of Nations.

His critics however point accusing fingers at him for sinking the club into debts, leading their accounts to be frozen by the taxman for accumulating over KES 100M tax arrears by June last year.

He was also bashed for not meeting his bargain to retain priced players who left the club.
