Football Kenya Federation has hired veteran coach Jacob ‘Ghost’ Mulee as new Harambee Stars coach on a three-year deal.
The unveiling of ‘Ghost’ comes barely a day after Francis Kimanzi parted ways with Harambee stars on ‘mutual consent’.
Ghost will lead the Harambee Stars outfit after 10 years in the cold, having last coached the team in 2010.
He resigned immediately after the CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup and has been heading the Liberty Sports Academy since.
During his unveiling on Wednesday, October 21, Football Kenya Federation boss Nick Mwendwa heaped praises on the veteran coach, noting that: “He will release his new technical bench in the next coming days. We have not time to waste and soon he will unveil the squad for the Comoros game. He has been there done that, won titles and now we have faith in him,”
On his part, Mulee had this to say: “I thank the President for having faith in me. We had a very lengthy discussion as to what the ambitions of the Federation are after the elections. After seeing working conditions are favorable I said it is a good thing. It is a difficult task ahead playing Comoros back to back but very important,”
