Omollo delighted with Sony job



Newly appointed Sony Sugar coach Sammy Pamzo Omollo is confident that he will lead the millers to a better position in next year’s Kenyan Premier League (KPL) season.

Omollo, who joined relegated TPL side Oserian from Tusker FC towards the end of the recently concluded campaign, has signed a two-year contract.

The former Kenya international replaced Zedekiah Zico Otieno, who is thought to have since channeled his efforts into politics. According to Omollo, his task is to reassert the Millers’ pedigree.

“We have agreed with the club and I will be there for the next two years, until 2015. We had a meeting with the officials on Wednesday and I was impressed with the offer – a two-year deal,” said Omollo.

“It is a new challenge to me, but I am ready to take them where they were. To me, Sony is a big club and I am confident everything will be okay come next season,” he added.

Sony won the Premier League title in 2006 under the tutelage of former Harambee Stars assistant coach Francis Baraza.

The club, however, finished 12th in the standings this past term with 38 points – 22 points behind champions Tusker and 14 points above the drop zone.
