Kenya Premier League outfit Tusker Football Club has terminated the employment contracts with immediate effect for their head coach Sam Timbe and his assistants.
This is barely four months after Timbe took over from another Ugandan, George “Best” Nsimbe.
The development was confirmed on Sunday by the club management following a 3-1 loss to Zoo Kericho Football Club.
Timbe, a Ugandan who has previously coached at Sports Club Villa Jogoo and Police in Uganda, was let go along with assistant coach Francis Baraza, goalkeeping tactician Haggai Azande and team doctor Wycliffe Makanga.
Defeat to Zoo Kericho left the 11-time champions in 15th position on the 18-team log with only 10 points from 11 games played. Tusker only attained two victories, drew four times and lost five.
Next in Line:
Robert Matano, who formerly handled AFC Leopards is tipped to be the next coach at Tusker after holding behind-the-door talks with management.
Four Ugandans, striker Mathew Odong, midfielders Robert Achema and Hashim Sempala, as well as defender Lawrence Kasadha earn their bread and butter at Tusker Football Club.
The club is expected to name a replacement in the next 24 hours.
