SACKED: Former Tusker Coach Sam Timbe

Kenyan club Tusker FC have sacked Ugandan coach Sam Timbe and the entire technical bench over the team’s poor run of form.

The decision by the club was reached after a 3-1 defeat to Zoo Kericho at the Kericho Green Stadium on Saturday.

Assistant coach Francis Baraza, team manager George Opondo, goalkeeper trainer Haggai Azande and team doctor Wycliffe Makanga are among those who have also been fired.

Timbe joined Tusker in January on a two-year deal after the club broke ranks with another Ugandan George ‘Best’ Nsimbe, following a string of poor performances last season.

The Ugandan leaves Tusker FC in the 15th position with 10 points from 11 games played.

The 11-time SportPesa Kenyan Premier League champions Tusker have been managed by three Ugandan coaches in a row. Paul Nkata, Sam Ssimbwa and Sam Timbe.

Former AFC Leopards coach Robert Matano is tipped to become Timbe’s successor.
