John Baraza has been elevated to the position of Sofapaka head coach after the resignation of American coach Melis Medo on Tuesday. The announcement has been made today by club president Elly Kalekwa who said the club had accepted the resignation of the tactician after a dismal start to the season. Sofapaka president Elly Kalekwa has said;
“The coach expressed his desire from the position and as a club, we have accepted his resignation. When someone resigns, most likely they have seen something they think they will not change and that’s why we have accepted his resignation and wish him all the best in his next endevour.”
“John Baraza will take charge of the team on interim basis, pending a decision on whether or not we will appoint a new coach. We will make that announcement when the time is right,” Mr, Kalekwa has said.
The president has also confirmed that assistant coach Benson Omukuba who arrived with Medo from Mount Kenya United will also leave the team.
He added; “We urge our fans to remain calm, the team is still intact. We know that we started badly, but maybe it is because of bad luck. I know and I am confident that we will bounce back and the team will be back to its best.”
