Sustained poor form Zico's SoNy Sugar downfall

16 July 2015, 18:57

Nairobi - SoNy Sugar chairman Paul Orato has confirmed the club have parted ways with head coach Zedekiah Otieno following their dire run of form this season.

The Awendo-based outfit find themselves hovering just three points above the Kenyan Premier League relegation zone after suffering 10 defeats in their opening 18 matches.

And, Sunday's 1-0 loss to Bandari, which made it 10 matches without a win, proved to be the last straw for the club, who have since sent 'Zico' packing.

"We have not got the desired results for a long time and as management we felt it was the right time for us to effect changes because the outcome of our matches was not palatable to the club and the supporters," Orato told The Star.

"Its not that the coach was solely the problem. Maybe as a management we gave him 80 percent of what he needed to succeed.

"When we talked to Zico we let him know the results the team was churning out were injurious to his coaching career regardless of who was to blame so we felt he should take a break and let others stem the tide."
