Nzoia Sugar sack Omondi over poor KPL run
- Omondi is understood to have been told of his fate after the team lost 3-2 to Kakamega Homeboyz at Bukhungu stadium last week, the result proving to be the final straw.
Nzoia Sugar FC have sacked head coach Collins “Korea” Omondi following a spate of poor results since he took over last year with former team captain and the outgoing Bukembe FC head tactician Sylivester Murukurwa poised to take charge on the long haul, sources have told Citizen Digital.
Murukurwa was in charge of Saturday’s assignment against KCB that ended in a 0-0 stalemate.
Murukurwa is in a familiar work environment having captained the club for 10 years in mid 1990’s and could be a permanent replacement should results be pleasant.
Omondi is understood to have been told of his fate after the team lost 3-2 to Kakamega Homeboyz at Bukhungu stadium last week, the result proving to be the final straw.
Evans Kadenge, the new Nzoia chairman however said they have asked Omondi to step aside for now as Murukurwa takes charge on interim basis.
“We have asked Omondi to step aside as we discuss his future but we are going to issue a comprehensive statement next week on Thursday. Performances’ have been poor and it was expected for such a decision to be taken if results did not come by,” he told Citizen Digital.
Omondi who was at Mathare, Nairobi Stima, KCB and Mathare Youth Sports Association (MYSA) previously in his coaching career arrived at Nzoia in August 2019 to replace Godfrey Oduor who joined KCB as an assistant coach.
However Omondi has never won a single KPL match with the millers during his stint.
Nzoia who finished 13th in 2018 season are currently placed 15 on the grid with 13 points from 22 matches.
