Kenyan Premier League (KPL) side Nzoia Sugar is well in the dark, at least officially, as far as the club’s head coach’s links to KCB FC are concerned, with teams starting to assemble for preseason training.
After a short stint at Sudi Stadium, Nzoia Sugar head coach Godfrey Solo Oduor has been reported to be on his way to the Bankers, who are restructuring their technical bench in preparation for the coming campaign.
“I have heard of the same too, but I can’t officially confirm, because while he is under contract with us, we have not as yet received any official bid from KCB,” Ngisa Mokua, the Nzoia Sugar chairman told Soka.
Oduor is said to be headed to KCB as a replacement for coach Sammy Pamzo Omollo who was until the end of the season an assistant to Frank Ouna, who has also left the club.
With a formal bid, and a middleground struck, Mokua says they will not stand in the coach’s way, if he wants to leave.
Won’t block a move
“Solo has been with us for a short stint, and we’d still want him to stay. He is under contract and if KCB wants to have him, we will have to reach some agreement first. We won’t block a move.
“He joined us in the second leg last season and we gave him a platform. The fact that he still has a running contract means we should be compensated for our loss,” he added.
Solo, the man who engineered the promotion of Kibera Black Stars to the National Super League (NSL) two seasons ago, signed a three year deal at Nzoia Sugar FC in the second leg of 2018/19 season, and went on to lead the team for 10 matches.
