No hard feelings - Manoah
Edward Manoah, the coach recently released by Chemelil Sugar FC, says he harbours no ill-feelings toward the club for breaking ties with him.
On his release, club chairman Robert Nyakundi indicated that a recent poor run had resulted in the decision.
Speaking of his move, the tactician says that he would have loved to stay with the team longer, and wishes the team success in future.
“It was obviously disappointing for me to know that I had been suspended indefinitely, but I am already over it. If the decision made will help the team get better, then I have no qualms with it, because ultimately, even as head coach my one desire was to see my side perform,” said Manoah.
Of his major accomplishments, while at Chemelil, Manoah said that he could not list them all, but points out player development as one of his primary achievements.
“During my tenure, I made sure that I picked virtually unknown players and gave them a chance to build a name. For instance, I was able to spot Jared Obwoge, formerly of Division One sides Karungu and West Kenya Sugar. He is just an example and there are tens of other players out there, who I personally spotted and nurtured.”
At the time of Manoah’s release, Chemelil, who are currently ranked 10th, had only won once in 16 matches. His position was taken up by Mike Mururi, his former assistant.
