Williamson casts doubt on Harambee Stars job
19 August 2014, 13:01
Nairobi - Newly appointed Harambee Stars coach Bobby Williamson has cast doubt over the job, saying he will not take care of two sides at the same time, calling it unethical.
“At the moment I am still the team’s (Gor Mahia) coach, but I am
certainly not comfortable with handling the two jobs. Those two are very
demanding jobs and I do not think it is tenable for me to handle both. I
am yet to make up my mind but I feel it would be very unethical to take
both jobs,” the decorated, former Uganda Cranes coach told kpl.co.ke.
Williamson was appointed Harambee Stars coach on August 5 by Football
Kenya Federation, replacing combustible Belgian Adel Amrouche who had
overseen a lethargic 2015 Africa Cup of Nation qualifying campaign.
Kenya were knocked out by football featherweights Lesotho in the
preliminary qualifying stage sparking a football outcry in the country.
Soon after Williamson’s appointment media reports indicated that Gor
Mahia would be hunting for a new coach to take over after the team
returned from the two-week long Cecafa Club Championship. An out of
sorts Gor Mahia side was bundled out in the group stages after failing
to win a single match.
Gor Mahia secretary general Chris Omondi however said the club will
hold on to their Scot coach, at least, until the season ends in
“Bobby is going nowhere for now because time is too short for us to
get a worthy replacement. We will hold on to him until the end of the
season,” Omondi said.
Gor, the league defending champions, returned to Kenya on Monday from
the Cecafa tournament in Kigali and will have little time to rest. They
host rivals Sony Sugar at City Stadium on Sunday and will be looking to
regain the league leadership from Tusker.
