Jacob 'Ghost' Mulee reappointed at Harambee Stars

Mulee, who guided Harambee Stars to the 2004 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) finals tournament will team up with former Kenya international defender Musa ‘Otero’ Otieno and Kariobangi Sharks head coach William Muluya as his assistants.

Jacob ‘Ghost’ Mulee has made a return as the national men’s football team head coach after penning a three-year deal with Football Kenya Federation on Wednesday.

The celebrated 52-year-old radio show host takes over the mantle from Francis Kimanzi who was fired on Tuesday afternoon, barely 24 hours after the position fell vacant.

Mulee, who guided Harambee Stars to the 2004 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) finals tournament will team up with former Kenya international defender Musa ‘Otero’ Otieno and Kariobangi Sharks head coach William Muluya as his assistants.

FKF president Nick Mwendwa passionately shot down questions on Kimanzi’s firing saying:

“It is like going to a wedding and the first question you ask is about the ex-girlfriend. That, we won’t answer. Today, we are talking about the new coach.”

Mulee’s immediate mission is to steer Stars to AFCON 2022 in Cameroon and Qatar 2022 World Cup.

“I thank the federation for believing in me to handle Harambee Stars in seeking a place in the forthcoming AFCON and WC. The task ahead of me is difficult but I am pleased to note that we have the capability in the team,” noted the tutor who is easily identified by his infectious laughter on and off radio.

Kenya faces The Comoros in a double-header fixture on November 11 in Nairobi and on 15th of the same month in the Island nation. Kenya, winless after two matches, and Comoros are drawn in pool G alongside Egypt and Togo in the AFCON qualifiers. Harambee Stars and Egypt have two points each from the same number of draws as Togo is bottom with one following a stalemate and a loss.
