Harambee Stars new coach named

By Metro Reporter
Kenya on Tuesday appointed former Uganda Cranes boss Bobby Williamson as the country's national football team Harambee Stars head coach.


Football Kenya Federation (FKF) boss Sam Nyamweya announced that Gor Mahia, the Scotsman who is in charge of domestic champions, will take over from Belgian Adel Amrouche who was sacked last Sunday after the team was eliminated from the 2015 Afcon by Lesotho on home soil.
Retired defender and captain Musa Otieno comes in as the assistant head coach with another retired veteran Stars midfielder Titus Mulama appointed Team Manager to take the places of sacked James Nandwa and Jacob Mulee.
"I promised Kenyans that we would act quickly and Bobby is the man to do the job of taking us forward," Nyamweya who also disbanded the team on Sunday added.
Speaking to local radio station earlier Tuesday, Williamson said it "would be an honour and privilege to manage Stars, but FKF must speak to Gor Mahia first. What Kenya needs is to start from the youth ranks to restore her former glory."
The 52-year-old is preparing to take Gor Mahia to the regional Cecafa Club Championships in Rwanda with the team due to depart Nairobi Wednesday for Kigali.
"My concern at the moment is with Gor and seeing them do well at Cecafa," the man who led them to their first domestic honours in 18 years last season stated.
He was fired by Uganda after a five year stint in charge of the Cranes last year after failing to qualify for the 2013 Afcon in South Africa.
