Mathare United Appoint New Coach
Struggling Football Kenya Federation Premier League side Mathare United have appointed Frank Ouna as their new manager following the departure of Salim Ali.
The former Ulinzi FC trainer becomes the latest coach without a job after parting ways with the club this morning.
Ali was fired after a string of poor results during which he collected just one win for the 2008 Kenyan Premier League champions.
Mathare CEO Jecton Obure has now confirmed to the club media that Ouna will lead the club until the end of the season.
“Ouna is a vastly experienced coach and this made it easy for us to decide on him. We have complete faith that his appointment will coincide with us scaling up the log,” said Obure.
Ouna previously handled Wazito FC and KCB as well as being involved in the technical benches of Premier League side Sofapaka FC.
The 44-year-old gaffer is a CAF ‘A’ license holder who also won the league title while working as an assistant coach to Bobby Williamson at Gor Mahia. He also assisted Stanley Okumbi during a spell with the national team between 2016 and 2018.
Mathare, who are bottom of the FKF PL log, are set to host fourth-placed KCB in their next league match at Kasarani Annex Stadium on Wednesday.
