- After registering poor results in the last 5 matches (two wins, two draws, and one loss) Bandari drop to tenth in the league under the caretaker manager, they have reassigned the role to Ken Odhiambo – just 15 months after he left the club for Sudan.
Odhiambo is now well equipped with a level ‘A’ certificate, a senior managerial role course. Ken returned to the country a few days ago to try and fight for the position. This comes as Bandari seeks to defend their FKF Shield trophy which they won last year.
Defending the trophy is not the only task troubling Odhiambo but getting the team back to the top five in this season Kenya premier league is tougher. “We are not doing well in the league but I hope that we will squeeze our name in the top five brackets,” Odhiambo said
Bandari has struggled this season so much this being the third time they are switching coaches in a season following the unceremonious dismissal of Benard Mwalala and the appointment of the outgoing interim manager Twahiri Mhuddin, a coach Odhiambo served under on 2015-2016 as an assistant. This is the third time Odhiambo is signing for the coast base Kenya premier league club, this time being a senior-most manager. He (Odhiambo) came with high expectations on the club and much to be achieved in getting the club back on the course.
The club’s good run on the league hit the rock with the players losing self-confidence, something that the new coach (Odhiambo) believes he will solve. “I do not intend to change anything philosophically wise but I will be looking to inject confidence in the boys. If they will believe in themselves, it will be easier to achieve our target and even win our second cup and return to continental football,” Odhiambo said.
