Baraza applies for Stima job

Former Sony Sugar coach and Kenya assistant trainer Francis Baraza has applied for the vacant Western Stima job.

The softly-spoken Baraza has been without a top tier club since his sacking by SoNy at the end of 2011, while he lost his position with the Harambee Stars at a similar time.

“I applied for the Stima job and have been told to attend an interview,” said Baraza. “Obviously it is good to be among those running for the job as it shows I still have a good name out there. “I have been out of a job for a year and I really want to get back to coaching.

“If Stima is the destination, then good as I want to again manage a team. “If it goes well, then I will be happy,” he said.

Baraza won the Tusker Premier League in 2006 at SoNy, and he has faith he could do with the same with Stima if given the opportunity.

“I won the title with a side similar to Stima,” said Baraza. “That year we did not have too many big names, just a squad that was together.

“Stima are similar, they do not have big names but have the capacity, talent and capability to do well. “I hope that if I get there, I will lift them close to the top,” he concluded.

Stima finished the 2012 season in ninth place in the standings.
