Omondi lands Bidco coaching role



Former KCB coach James Omondi has found a place at second tier outfit Bidco United, with the switch having the feel of musical chairs about it.

Omondi, sacked at the end of the 2012 season after a dismal showing from the bankers, will take up the role of assistant coach at Bidco.

He will serve under former Kenya under-23 tactician Mike Amenga and in a twist of fate, move to the club the current KCB coach Juma Abdalla arrived from, having been at Bidco last season.

Omondi is glad that he is back in the game this soon after being fired, and hopes that he can have a crack at promotion to the Kenyan Premier League.

“I am happy to be back in the game so soon,” said Omondi. “At times it is difficult to just sit at home when you are used to the sidelines and also when you have just been sacked. You always hope to get somewhere to move to but it does not always work that way.

“This time though I am lucky enough to get a job and back where I love. It is a challenge I take with all my power and hope for success in the coming year.”

Omondi insists he does not mind being an assistant coach. “This is a good club and an exciting one too,” he said.

“Most of all, there is stability here and a management team that wants to be successful. From whatever position I will be, I am happy to play a part in the growth of the club and the eventual rise to the Premier League which is the main objective. I hope for the best and a good working relationship with the head coach,” he added.

Bidco finished the 2012 season second in Division One Zone A, just missing out on promotion to the top tier.
