Muhoroni mourn fallen Odhiambo



Kenyan Premier League (KPL) rookies Muhoroni Youth FC are in mourning after the team’s deputy coach Sylvester Odhiambo passed away in the early hours of Sunday at a hospital in Kisumu.

The tactician, who managed the team for two months in the recently concluded season while head coach Alfred Imonje was suspended, succumbed ten days after being admitted to the hospital.

Muhoroni Youth chairman Moses Adagala termed it a very hard moment for the club, and spoke of the fallen coach as a hard working gentleman who always had the interests of the team at heart.

Adagala also passed on his condolences to Odhiambo’s family and friends, saying Odhiambo will be dearly missed by the entire Kenyan football fraternity.

“We lost our deputy coach Sylvester Odhiambo early on Sunday morning. He had been admitted ten days ago but he lost the fight for his life and we are facing really hard moments at the team now. He was a part of us and the thought that we will never be with him is hard to take,” said Odhiambo.

“On behalf of my family and the entire Muhoroni Youth FC fraternity, I would like to pass my heartfelt condolences to his family, friends and dependants. Odhiambo will be sorely missed by all football lovers in this country and beyond.”

Odhiambo assumed the post of assistant coach when Imonje was handed the head coaching role at the beginning of the 2012 season. He was the coach when Muhoroni Youth finished top in the second tier in 2010 to seal promotion to the KPL.
