Wadda takes over at City Stars



Nairobi City Stars have appointed Bye Wadda as the fulltime coach for the start of the new season.

Gambian international Wadda, took over the first team reins in October 2012 when head coach Gideon Ochieng left the country for the United States, for what was said to be a short symposium.

Ochieng was to return before the end of the season but he did not and has seldom communicated to this day, after earlier being expected to be in town for the start of the pre-season training next week.

Club chair Peter Jabuya says that he feels they need to move on, seeing as Ochieng is not on his way back home soon, and has elevated Wadda to coach – adding that they will appoint two assistant coaches to back him up.

“Bye Wadda will start the new Kenyan Premier League season as head coach. We will appoint two assistant coaches to help him out and give him all the tools necessary to do well,” he said.

“The truth is that Gideon Ochieng has not communicated with us from America for a long time and we do not expect him back soon according to our sources. We are a football club that needs to prepare and so can’t live in limbo. We have to move on and thus the change on our part.”

Jabuya says that under Wadda, he expects them to improve as an entity and achieve better than they did last season.

“Wadda is experienced and has coached elsewhere in the world including his native Gambia,” he said. “He has also been here with us for some time and so understands the Kenyan game.”

“That combination is what we need to grow, we need some experience and good understanding of our needs to excel. “I feel that with him in charge we can do well.” City Stars finished two places above the relegation zone in the KPL last season.
