Manoah parts ways with Chemelil



Towards the end of the 2012 Tusker Premier League season, Chemelil Sugar FC’s head coach Edward Manoah was put on compulsory leave for 40 days.

His release was linked to a string of poor performances, and on his exit his assistant Mike Mururi took charge of the team, guiding it to a seventh–placed finish.

After the expiry of his suspension, the club’s executive committee held a meeting on Friday 9 November to deliberate on Manoah’s fate. It was ruled that the club would not extend the tactician’s contract when it runs out at the end of the year.

According to the club’s chairman Robert Nyakundi, Manoah had served them well, but the executive committee had decided that it was time they try out another coaching option.

“In football, you cannot afford to remain static. When it’s time for change, you implement it well and move on. That is what is called progress,” said Nyakundi.

“Manoah’s time with us has been very impressive as he has steered the team through trying moments. With the coming of a new season, we have decided to find another coach for the team, as we seek to perform better than we have been in the past.”

In their last match of the season, Chemelil handed heavyweights AFC Leopards a 1-0 defeat at the Awendo green stadium.
