I did my best - Omondi



Sacked KCB coach James Omondi says he gave of his best for the club, and insists he feels no ill feelings towards his former employers.

Omondi and his assistant Peter Ambetsa were shown the door by the Tusker Premier League club on Tuesday following their 10th-placed finish in the standings.

Omondi feels with a few more players, the side could have mounted a better challenge for domestic honours.

“I am sad to be leaving a club I have served for a long time,” Omondi said. “I know that in football it is all about results and I guess that not finishing in the top eight was always going to be a problem.”

“I did my best at the club and leave a proud man. I had planned big things for the club next season and had also spoken to the players about my wishes but this is football and these things happen. I would like to thank everyone for the assistance and wish the players a good time in future.”

As for his next move, Omondi is not yet sure.

“For now I will relax for the holidays and see how the new year looks like. If I get something, then of course we will look at it and consider. Now though, it is time to relax with my family and reflect on the season that has just ended.”

“I am still young so I can’t say that I will stop coaching. We will see when the time comes,” he concluded.

Omondi took over the KCB reins from Leonard Saleh, who was sacked in the latter stages of the 2011 season.
