Kenya Premier League Side Wazito FC have reportedly parted ways with Assistant Coach Hamisi Mohammed. This comes just days after the team sacked Fred Ambani and Stanley Okumbi who were head coach and Technical director respectively.
Hamisi took over as head coach on an interim basis as the club shopped for a new permanent coach. With Wazito having finally settled for Melis Medo as the new head coach, a source within the club has hinted that Medo wants to bring in his own people to help him run things at the Badoer Investments owned side.
Assistant coach Hamisi Mohammed has become the first casualty. Hamisi will be remembered for winning the WorldRemit future stars competition in 2018. Through it he got an opportunity to train with Arsenal’s Soccer School coaches.
Goalkeeper trainer Elias Odhiambo has also left with Wazito roping in Stephen Balozi from NSL side Talanta FC to take his place.
“I will not reveal the reason behind my decision (to leave) but it was a nice experience working with Wazito. All I can do is wish them the best this season and future endeavours,” Said Hamisi as quoted by Goal.
Reports are also rife that Medo wants to bring in Benjamin Omukuba as a replacement for the departing Hamisi Mohammed. Omukuba was Medo’s assistant at Nakumatt FC, now Mt. Kenya United.
Medo took charge of his first match as Wazito coach on Sunday but had to settle for a point after his new boys fired blanks against Posta Rangers at the Narok Stadium.
Next up for Wazito is a match against cash strapped Sony Sugar on Saturday.
