Football Kenya Federation Part Ways With Ghost

Football Kenya Federation (FKF) have parted ways with Harambee Stars head coach Jacob ‘Ghost’ Mulee and his assistant Twahir Muhiddin.

Goalkeeping coach Haggai Azande has also been fired.

The move comes 11 days after the Harambee Stars drew their second straight 2022 World Cup qualifier, with the 1-1 in Rwanda coming after a goalless draw in Uganda.

In a press release, FKF Secretary General Barry Otieno broke the news saying the decision was arrived at by mutual consent.

“FKF and Harambee Stars head coach Jacob ‘Ghost’ Mulee, his assistant Twahir Muhiddin and goalkeeping coach Haggai Azande have reached a decision to part ways by mutual consent effective immediately.

“Assistant coaches Ken Odhiambo and William Muluya will remain in the team as the federation works to reconstruct the Harambee Stars technical bench ahead of the 2022 World Cup qualifier against Mali, scheduled for October 6 and 12 respectively,” read part of the release.

“The search for a new national team head coach is already underway and an announcement will be made shortly,” the FKF said in a statement.

“Assistant coach Ken Odhimabo and William Muluya will remain in the team as the federation works to reconstruct the Harambee Stars’ technical bench ahead of the World Cup qualifiers against Mali, scheduled for October, home and away.”

Kenya join the likes of Egypt,Zimbabwe and Ghana who have all parted ways with their coach since September’s World Cup qualifiers.
