Kenya Police coach resigns after suffering another defeat against Kakamega Homeboyz
Harambee Stars’ most capped player, Musa ‘Otero’ Otieno has stepped down from his role as Kenya Police FC’s assistant coach.
Otero joined the law enforcers in March 2022 alongside head coach Sammy Pamzo Omolo.
Police went down 1-0 to Kakamega Homeboyz earlier today. They also lost their opening match of the season to KCB.
Otieno confirmed to Nation Sport that he has stepped down from his role at the club “saying it is a long story for another day.”
He joined the club in March alongside head coach Sammy “Pamzo” Omollo. This was after the club parted ways with former coach John Bobby Ogolaa and technical director Lukas Tott.
After being promoted to the topflight league in July last year, the club spent heavily but failed to perform well. They finished ninth last season with 47 points, 19 behind leaders Tusker.
Sources at the club who spoke on condition of anonymity said leadership wrangles have led to the poor start to the new season.
This comes hours after Kakamega Homeboyz recorded their second win of the campaign, dispatching Kenya Police FC by a solitary goal at the Ulinzi Sports Complex in Lang’ata.
Moses Shumah struck right at the death after Sammy Pamzo Omollo‘s backline allowed the new signing an easy time on the ball, allowing him to slot home comfortably.
Moses Mudavadi had the beat clear cut chance in the first half, receiving the ball just outside the six yard box but his effort was blocked. The captain had the option to hit the ball on the volley but he opted to put the ball under control first.
Homeboyz were dealt a blow in the first half, but it would turn to be a blessing in disguise, following the injury of Levis Okello, with Shumah coming on to take his place.
On resumption, Police made a double change as the sought to shake up their attack. Elvis Rupia and Francis Kahata were introduced for David Simiyu and Clifton Miheso.
They followed it with another change as Alvin Mangeni and James Kibande came in for Reagan Otieno …
