Kenya Premier League side Wazito FC has announced that coach Stewart Hall has left the club on mutual consent.
Hall joined the Aidos Kuneen sponsored side in November last year replacing American Melis Medo.
“I wish to confirm that I have reached an agreement with Wazito FC for my departure from the club. When I joined the team last November my duty was to stabilize the team and recruit players who would bring balance to the squad as we lacked that then,” Hall told the club’s official website.
“Together with my technical team, we worked really hard, the players did their part and together we managed to get some good results. Just before the league was stopped by the COVID-19 pandemic, we were unbeaten in almost ten matches and this shows the strides we had made as a team”.
Hall thanked Wazito’s management, the playing unit and members of the technical bench and wished the team success in it’s future endeavors. He added that he will be travelling to the UK to spend time with his family.
Wazito’s CEO Dennis Gicheru thanked Coach Stewart for his contribution to the team.
“He arrived at a time that we were really struggling and slowly by slowly he built a strong side and I am sure that his successor will inherit a good team. As he departs we wish him all the best for the future,” Gicheru said.
On the appointment of a new coach, Gicheru revealed that the club make an announcement on the same very soon.
“We are consulting and we will be making an announcement soon,” he said.
