Kimanzi’s era with Wazito FC comes to an end

Former national team Harambeee Stars head coach Francis Kimanzi has parted ways with Kenya Premier League side Wazito FC following a string of poor performance.

The Dutch-trained tactician was appointed by Wazito in November 2020 to become the seventh coach to handle the Ricardo Badoer-owned outfit in less than four years.

Once touted as the French moneybags in Paris-Saint Germain due to its financial prowess, things have not been rosy at the team lately with reports of unpaid salaries to players in recent months.

In its heyday, the club, owned by flashy businessman Ricardo Badoer flexed its financial muscles by luring talented and big names from all clubs in the competition including Gor Mahia and AFC Leopards.

Youth side gaffer Fred Ambani has taken over interimly as the team explores options of hiring a coach on permanent basis.

Ambani will be making a return to the club having been sacked in November 2020 alongside his assistant Salim Babu and goalkeeper trainer Elisha Otieno.

The team lies in 16th place in the 18 table team with a paltry nine points from 13 games after going down 4-2 against relegation threatened Vihiga Bullets over the weekend.

The experienced tactician under who Kenya achieved its highest ever FIFA ranking has also previously served as Mathare United and Tusker FC head coach besides deputising Frenchman Sebastian Migne at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations finals in Egypt.
