The ex-Police FC tactician and current Cranes assistant has revealed to RED Pepper Online that he will help Kenya Premier League side Sofapaka clinch trophies after penning a two year deal.
Sofapaka’s new coach Sam Timbe arrived in Nairobi on Tuesday morning to begin a two year contract at the club.
Timbe, who retains his position as Uganda Cranes assistant coach, said on arrival that he was glad to handle a team of Sofapaka’s caliber and promised to help them deliver on their goal.
“This is a great opportunity for me to handle a club of this caliber. It feels great to work in Kenya and together we will do great things here,” he exclusively told this pape later Tuesday.
Sofapaka President Elly Kalekwa said the signing of Timbe is in line with their vision to win the 2013 Kenyan Premier League title.
“We will retain David Ouma on the technical bench as assistant coach. He has done well but Sofapaka currently needs someone who can take them to another level,” said Kalekwa.
Kalekwa had two weeks ago indicated that the club will bring in a foreign coach at a time they had started to struggle in winning matches on the local scene.
The club has not won the KPL title since they did it for the first time in 2009. Ouma was confirmed as head coach at the beginning of this year but has struggled to help the club win matches consistently.
Timbe enjoys a good record in the region having won two successive Cecafa Kagame Cup titles with Uganda sides SC Villa in 2005 and Police in (2006).
