Stima pleased to welcome Saleh



Western Stima have confirmed that Leonard Saleh is the club’s new head coach.

The Agrochemicals head coach will join the power outfit in the 2013 season after agreeing to a one-year deal with Stima.

He will try revive a side that is looking to rise in the Kenyan Premier League standings and stake its claim as a big boys in the league. Club chair Laban Jobita confirmed the deal and admitted that they have been looking at Saleh for over a year.

“I am proud to announce that we have come to an agreement with Leonard Saleh to be Western Stima coach,” he said.

“It is a great day for the club to get in such a good coach to lead us forward. We have been looking at Saleh for a very long time and have staked our claim for him to come here for some time. Now we have got our man so we are very happy.”

Jobita expects Saleh to lift the side to a top five place or above, during his spell there.

“We have signed a coach who is a proven performer. He has been at KCB lately and many other clubs before as has the national team, so he knows what goes on at this level and how to improve the team.

“I am sure and we have spoken that we have to play in the top eight next season for a start and if possible the top five. We will help him with getting new players in and ensure he is comfortable.” Saleh finished third in Division one with Agro in the 2011 season.
