Iddi sacked in Tanzania



Kenyan coach Iddi Abdoul Salim has been given his marching orders down in Tanzania where has been serving as the goalkeeping coach the country’s top flight side Simba SC.

Iddi was appointed at the club in July 2015 on a year long contract but a spate of poor results forced the club to make changes with the head coach Dylan Kerr also being shown the door.

Former Ugandan international Jackson Mayanja who was recently appointed the club assistant coach has been introduced to the team as the interim coach while Simba SC Under-20 coach Abdallah Adam has been named as the goalkeeper trainer.

Iddi was not available for comment while the head coach, Kerr, had a tweet that signified his departure, though he deleted the tweet after a short while.

“Good Morning, za Asubuhi, To All my Tanzaniain Friends Goodbye. Asante sana Zanzibar asante sana Tanzania asante sana Simba,” (Good morning, all my Tanzanian friends goodbye. Thank you Zanzibar, thank you Tanzania, thank you Simba), the tweet read.

Salim has previously served as the goalkeeping coach at AFC Leopards, Gor Mahia, Bandari FC and the Kenya national team.
