Football Kenya Federation has unveiled Jacob ‘Ghost’ Mulee as the new Harambee Stars head coach. This comes just hours after the federation confirmed that former coach Francis Kimanzi and his backroom staff had all left their roles.

Mulee makes a return to the National team having coached and guided it to the 2004 Africa Cup of Nations in Tunisia.

His latest appointment will mark his fifth term as the National team head coach.

Mulee will be assisted by Musa Otieno with Haggai Azande set to be the goalkeeping coach.

“I thank the President for having faith in me. We had a very lengthy discussion as to what the ambitions of the Federation are after the elections. After seeing working conditions are favorable I said it is a good thing. It is a difficult task ahead playing Comoros back to back but very important” said Mulee after his unveiling.

“But with the team that I saw against Zambia, there is every possibility that we can go back to AFCON,” he added.

On his end, FKF President Nick Mwendwa affirmed his faith in Ghost stating that he is the right man for the job.

“We have not time to waste and soon he will unveil the squad for the Comoros game. He has been there done that, won titles and now we have faith in him,” Said Mwendwa.

The experienced tactician and his backroom staff will be tasked with guiding the team in the 2021 AFCON qualifiers and the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

Apart from the National team, Ghost has also had stints with FKFPL side Tusker FC, APR of Rwanda and Yanga SC of Tanzania.
