Ali takes over as Ulinzi coach



Former Sofapaka tactician Salim Ali is the new Ulinzi Stars coach.

Ali confirmed to supersport.com of the development that sees him replace Sammy Simiyu at the helm.

“We managed to reach an agreement on Tuesday. A lot of clubs were after my signature but I have to admit they had a better offer and we’ve put pen to paper,” he told supersport.com.

“I was on a break after exiting Sofapaka but Ulinzi is a good club and I look forward to the upcoming challenges that come with my new role at the club.”

The club highlighted their new choice in coaching role via their website.

“Ulinzi Stars FC is pleased to announce that we have a new Coach. Former Mathare United and Sofapaka Coach Salim Ali has been picked to head the team into the new season. Ali has been picked after a rigorous exercise that saw top level coaches from all over the country interviewed for the job.”

“Coach Sammy Simiyu who has been handling the team in the last season after Benjamin Nyangweso was redeployed will deputize Ali.”

Ulinzi finished sixth with 45 points in the recently concluded season and will feature in the Top 8 tournament next season.
