Failure to stage a fight in the Kenya Premier League (KPL) last season has enticed Bandari FC into courting title winning coach Paul Nkata.

Nkata didn’t only win the league for Tusker FC but also went into history books as the first coach to clinch a double by winning the Go TV Shield Cup in an eventful year for the Brewers.

Impeccable sources to Kawowo Sports indicate reveal that Nkata, whose contract at the Brewers allows him to leave the club for a better offer is believed to be ready to leave the champions for a side that finished 11th on the log.

“The negotiations with Bandari are in advanced stages,” said a source that preferred not to be named. “But the first option remains with Tusker in case they match the offer by the Coastal town side,” it added.

In the aftermath of winning the league, Nkata clearly said he wasn’t sure about his future at the Ruaraka based side.

As a coach, doing well may earn you a more lucrative offer elsewhere. It’s not that am leaving but you never known. When I did well at Muhoroni Youth, Tusker came to me an offer too good to refute  

Bandari won the Go TV Shield Cup in 2015 but had an abysmal year despite signing top players.

The club is home to Ugandan players George Abege, Musa Mudde and Daniel ‘Mzee’ Sserunkuma.

Nkata has previously coached at Muhoroni Youth (Kenya), SC Villa, Express FC and Uganda Revenue Authority FC.
