After seven matches in charge, Coach John Baraza has convinced his employers that he has what it takes to be the substantial head coach at Sofapaka.
Sofapaka Club President Elly Kalekwa confirmed that John Baraza has been confirmed for the role left vacant after the shock resignation by Sam Ssimbwa.
Since taking over in March, John Baraza has turned the fortunes for Batoto ba Mungu.The club has won thrice, drawn thrice and lost once for a point tally that places them at third spot in the Kenyan Premier League standings. They tie with second placed Ulinzi Stars and just three points behind leaders Gor Mahia.
“Baraza has been my player, I took him for coaching classes and the team is now doing very well under him. Why should I change a winning side? I have more than 100 resumes from foreign coaches looking for a chance to coach Sofapaka, but Baraza is my man,” President Kalekwa told the Club’s website.
The club boasts of one of the finest and most experienced players in the country.
