Kisumu All-Stars part ways with Opiyo; rehires former coach

Kenyan Premier League newbies Kisumu All-Stars have parted ways with coach Arthur Opiyo with the team now under the tutelage of coach Andrew Aroka.

Opiyo had taken over the team's reigns on a one month deal according to sources following the departure of Henry Omino but the position has now been relinquished to Aroka.

Aroka barely a month after he was sent home with head coach Henry Omino; the tactician having worked with Omino as his assistant.

Opiyo had been appointed at the club on an interim basis following the ouster of Omino but the results haven't been forthcoming with the team currently languishing at the bottom of the log having been overtaken by Chemelil Sugar FC over the weekend.

Francis Oduor and Henry Omino respectively. His first assignment will be against Nyabururu in Betway Shield Cup at Gusii Stadium this coming weekend. All the best Aroka.

Aroka's should know the team better having been with them since their days in the National Super League. He is expected to hit the ground running in his first assignment that will be against Nyabururu FC in the Shield Cup at Gusii Stadium this weekend. 

In the 19 games played by All-Stars, they have recorded two wins, drew the same number of games and lost 15; they have lost their last ten games.

Aroka’s first taste of league football as the head coach will be against Ulinzi Stars later this month and the fixtures are not kind to him either.

After the Ulinzi game, they are slated to take high flying Tusker FC, Mathare United, Zoo FC, neighbours Western Stima and Chemelil Sugar FC in what will be a thrilling battle in the fight to stay afloat.
