Bandari, Mwalala yet to conclude severance package talks
- Mwalala whose contract was to run out in July 2021 said in the next two weeks they will have a severance plan in place.
Former Bandari FC head coach Bernard Mwalala says he is almost finalizing his severance package with the club, almost six months since he was booted out.
Mwalala enjoyed a success laden stint with the Coast based outfit twice finishing as league runners up and also winning the FKF Cup but results proved hard to come by this term leading to his sacking.
Speaking to Citizen Digital, Mwalala whose contract was to run out in July 2021 said in the next two weeks they will have a severance plan in place.
“We have held constructive talks with the club’s management and it’s just a matter of time before we conclude everything – that could happen in the next two weeks,”said Mwalala .
The former Nzoia Sugar coach left Bandari after a series of poor performances with the 2-1 defeat at the hands of Tusker FC in Mombasa marking his final match in charge.
Veteran tactician Twahir Muhiddin was sounded out to step in on interim basis before the club re-hired Ken Odhiambo on a two-year deal.
Odhiambo’s exit to pursue further studies abroad had prompted the signing of Mwalala from Nzoia.
“I want to wish Ken all the best in his role; he is a good lad and Bandari is a great team and place for him to succeed,” added Mwalala.
Asked if he had an offer in place, the former Harambee Stars striker was non-committal only saying “he still loved the game and is planning on a comeback someday”.
