Relegation-threatened National Super League (NSL) side Agro Chemicals FC has parted ways with head coach Paul Ogai and his assistant Joseph Ongoro, Futaa.com understands.
The team is currently languishing in the relegation zone and risks going down if its fortunes doesn't change in the remaining three matches. The former Kenyan Premier League side is 18th in the 19-team log with 23 points same as 17th placed Administration Police FC but the Kisumu based side has an inferior goal-difference.
Following Thursday 9 November 1-4 hammering by Modern Coast Rangers, the club management has decided to wield the axe dismissing the former Palos FC coach and his assistant Ongoro. Ongoro has previously worked as a goalkeepers' trainer at relegated Kenyan Premier League side Muhoroni Youth.
Ogai, Ongoro out
-We have parted ways with Ogai and Ongoro as the club is currently in the relegation zone. When we appointed him he was given a free hand to sign the players he needed and offered all the required support. We pay salaries on time but unfortunately, the performance has been poor. We will appoint an interim team to take charge of the remaining three matches and we hope to remain in the league, an official from the club told Futaa.com on condition of anonymity.
Ogai was appointed Agro coach in May 2017 after leaving Palos FC.
