Bandari appoint Muhiddin
Newly promoted Kenyan Premier League side Bandari FC have named former national team boss Twahir Muhiddin as their assistant coach.
Muhiddin, who was recommended to the position by head coach Rishadi Shedu, will take charge of the side in an interim capacity once they return from the December break (on 3 January 2013), up to the time Shedu is able to recover from knee surgery.
Confirming Muhiddin’s appointment, the club’s chief executive Ben Oloo said that the decision to hire Muhiddin was made at a recent board meeting.
“Muhiddin was recommended to the board by Shedu himself and we are sure he (Shedu) had a good reason for doing so,” said Oloo.
“Muhiddin will immediately take up position as the club’s assistant coach and he will be in charge until Shedu returns,” he added.
Shedu went under the knife on 20 November 2012, to take care of a nagging knee injury, and he is expected to report back for duty towards the end of January. He is reportedly making steady progress with his rehabilitation.
The tactician helped the club immediately bounce back to the Kenyan top-flight following their relegation at the end of the 2011 season.
