Kakamega Homeboyz fresh problems emerges as no coach want to take the vacant seat.
After parting ways with Coach Bernard Mwalala, Homeboyz management quest to find his replacement has suffered an astonishing blow.
Notably Salim Babu and Mike Mururi are the latest to reject Homeboyz approach to take charge of the Bukhungu-based club. According to reports, experienced Edward Manoah and former Kenyan international Ramadhan Balala are guiding the team in their pre-season preparations.
However, Homeboyz team manager Boniface Imbenzi is full of confidence that they will get a new coach soon and his team will do well next season despite mass player exodus.
They have so far lost David Okoth who joined Kenya Police FC, Yema Mwana, Gaetan Masha, Nairobi City Stars-bound Brian Eshihanda, Steve Wakanya, Raymond Murugi and Evans Maliachi.
Homeboyz narrowly lost their 2021/22 FKF Premier League battle, losing the title to Tusker FC on a goal difference. The then led Bernard Mwalala side lost their grip towards the end of the season after being top of the log for the better part of last season.
“The squad remains almost intact since we have only released a few players to join our opponents. I think we will still do well, only that we have to refocus and put our heads together with one target in mind because I know that we will have some challenges along the way,” he said.
“As much as it will look like we may have pressure, but we have been so consistent for the last three, four, five seasons where we have been finishing in the top five. Pressure will not be on us but on our opponents who will want to stop us from taking point from them.”
