Gor Mahia coach Hasan Oktay has been named the KPL coach of the month for February.
He floored Sofapaka’s John Baraza and Posta Rangers’ John Kamau to bag the gong after receiving the most votes from the Sports Journalists Association of Kenya (SJAK) football committee.
Oktay led K’Ogalo to victories over arch rivals AFC Leopards, Vihiga United, Sofapaka and Tusker FC while they drew 1-1 with Western Stima in month of February.
The Cypriot joined K’Ogalo late last year ahead of the new season and has so far enjoyed considerable success.
Under his watch the team qualified for the quarterfinals of the Caf Confederation Cup for the first time in their history.
He has also managed to steady their ship in the KPL after a slow start and are now second in the log standings on 32 points, one off leaders Sofapaka with four matches at hand.
The team qualified for the round of 16 of the FA Cup, SportPesa Cup, following a 4-0 win over Kenpoly on Wednesday.
