Bandari Football Club will welcome Ken Odhiambo as the new head coach taking over from Twahir Muhiddin who returns to his Technical Director’s role. This is according to the club’s official statement.
”Ken Odhiambo has been named Bandari FC coach for the second time,” reads the statement.
”He will take over from Twahir Muhddin who will be returning to his initial capacity as the technical director.”
The former Kenyan Internationals says it feels great to be back ‘home’.
”I feel so great to be back home. I call it home because I stayed for more than four years here and I understand the entire culture of Bandari Football Club,” he tells the Club’s media team.
Twahir was quickly roped in midway through January 2020 due to the team’s disastrous spell that had seen them take a 2-1 fall at the hands of Tusker. It was their third loss in five games for the team that just recently represented the country in CAF continental games. He had taken over from Bernard Mwalala who was then asked to step aside.
Mwalala had been at the helm since mid-2018 and had good tidings from the Mombasa side until things began to fall apart after their elimination from the CAF Confederation Cup. Muhiddin, who had been technical director all this while, was then asked to briefly take over.
In his spell as interim head coach, the former Kenya national team coach lost only once- his first match to Gor Mahia and has been undefeated ever since. With two draws and four successive wins, the dockers rose from the second half of the log and currently sit just behind Mathare United.
Ken, taking over at the club, will have his second spell begin as soon as the Kenyan Premier League resumes having been coach at the club before Mwalala’s arrival in mid-2018.
