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 November.

“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.
