Sofapaka backing for Ouma

Sofapaka have confirmed that David Ouma will be their head coach for the new season.

The announcement ends speculation over whether the club will bring in a foreign trainer to replace Stewart Hall, who left for Azam in Tanzania.

Ouma, who was acting coach at the end of the 2012 season, helped the club finish the season after Hall departed three games to the finish line.

Having been in charge of pre-season training and transfers, the club have handed Ouma the reins on a long-term basis, a move backed by the team’s president Elly Kalekwa.

“We have confirmed Ouma as head coach for the new season,” said Kalekwa.

“He will take over on a permanent basis and run on for two years. We are confident in his ability and as he has shown in his time at the club, he is a person who is fit to take on this job. He has already shown enough in pre-season to show us that we can trust him with the club. I offer him my congratulations and wish him all the best in the new season.”

Ouma is a former Rangers FC coach and moved to Sofapaka in the 2012 season to serve as an assistant to Salim Ali and then later on to Hall.
