For the third year in a row, 11-time Kenyan Premier League champions Tusker FC will be managed by a Ugandan coach.
According to the reports in Kenya, Sam Timbe is set to be unveiled today as Tusker’s head coach on a two-year deal.
He will replace compatriot George ‘Best’ Nsimbe, who was sacked at the end of the season for a disastrous 2017 campaign that saw the team surrender both the GOtv Shield and the league title to AFC Leopards and Gor Mahia, respectively.
Timbe managed a Kenyan club Sofapaka in August 2013, leading the team to the domestic title in 2014 before quitting after expiry of his contract in August 2015 to rejoin Ugandan side Police.
Tusker won a double in 2016 under Ugandan Paul Nkata but struggled in the 2017 season, finishing a distant sixth with 50 points, 24 behind the champions Gor Mahia.
