Former Kenya national team head coach Bobby Williamson could be moving to Tanzania in the near future to take up a new job as the Simba SC head coach.
The coach has been out of a job since February when the new Football Kenya Federation (FKF) office, led by chairman Nick Mwendwa relieved him of his duties upon ascension to office.
His last assignment as Kenya coach was in the penalty shootouts defeat at the hands of Rwanda at the CECAFA Senior Challenge in Ethiopia in December 2015 and he has been touted to take over at the Tanzanian side based on his experience in East Africa.
His representing agency, Siyavuma Sports Group, however said no formal talks have taken place with the Tanzanian side.
“Certainly Tanzania is appealing to Bobby, he knows East African Football inside out, but it would need to be a big club with ambition, he has options to consider across the continent, but at this stage no formal talks in Tanzania have taken place. His record at national team level and club football with Gor Mahia speaks for itself,” the agency spokesperson Msisi Gumede told Soka360.
Bobby has previously handled the Uganda national team, before crossing over to Kenya to coach Gor Mahia before taking up the Harambee Stars role.
