Posta Rangers to unveil ex-Stars boss Okumbi as new coach
Former Harambee Stars boss Stanley Okumbi will be unveiled as Posta Rangers head coach on Monday, just three days after Sammy ‘Pamzo’ Omollo was dismissed from the role.
The struggling side has settled on the Under-20 national team tactician to take over from Omollo who had overseen just one win from 11 FKF Premier League matches this season before he was sacked on Thursday along with his technical bench.
Okumbi, who is the current Kenya Under-20 coach, confirmed he was in talks with Rangers but added the final paperwork had yet to completed.
“It’s true we’re in talks with Rangers and everything will be done in the next two days hopefully then on Monday I’ll be ready to talk about what we agreed with my new employers. For now because it’s not yet done I will not reveal anything,” he said.
Okumbi has been out of club football since he resigned at Mathare United over four years ago for the national team job, will take over at the Mailmen who have struggled to find their footing this season.
Under Omollo, Posta Rangers have only won once in their eleven league outings this season and they lie 13th in the top tier log on 10 points, 13 behind league leaders Tusker FC.
