Former Chemelil Sugar FC head coach Mike Mururi is back in management, this time with Kenyan Premier League (KPL) new boys Kakamega Homeboyz ahead of the 2016 season scheduled to start in February.
The coach was sacked by Chemelil Sugar towards the end of the 2015 season as the Millers struggled at the lower end of the premier league log but having found a new home in Kakamega, he will definitely be looking to get the shimmer back to his profile.
The Kakamega Homeboyz chairman Cleophas Shimanyula stated that the former Kenyan international’s experience was a key factor in the decision to hire him and backed him to do well at the team after replacing Edward Manoah who was relieved of his duties at the club.
“We have hired Mururi to take us through this new experience in the premier league and we are confident that he will do well at the team because he is well experienced and has managed a premier league club before,” he said.
Mururi was named the 2014 KPL Coach of the Year after leading Chemelil Sugar to fifth place in the season but his fall from grace followed in the 2015 season as his team struggled to cope, with relegation seeming a possibility all through.
