Chemelil stall over appointment



Kenyan Premier League side Chemelil Sugar are reluctant to appoint an assistant to head coach Mike Mururi.

Club chairman Robert Nyakundi says he has every confidence Mururi, who was recently promoted to his current position, can get the best out of the side with assistance from the existing technical bench.

Nyakundi added that Chemelil Sugar aim to make a strong impression on the league standings in the upcoming season.

“We are not in a hurry to sign an assistant coach and therefore that remains for the time being,” said Nyakundi.

“I have full confidence in the coach and his team on the bench and I know they will manage. The team is qualified and is ready for the coming season since we are determined to make a difference on the league,” concluded Nyakundi.

The chairman also revealed that Mururi is currently on compassionate leave after losing his wife a fortnight ago and will rejoin the team after a week to conduct the player recruitment process ahead of the 2013 season.

Chemelil finished inside the top eight teams last term and will therefore be chasing after two titles this year – the league and Top 8 Cup.
