Nairobi Stima head coach George Owoko has refuted claims that he has been sacked by the side ahead of their weekend clash with St. Joseph’s Youth.

Reports had indicated that Owoko had parted ways with the club on Wednesday when they were about to face FC Talanta-a match he sat out for-but the tactician has revealed that he had personal matters to attend to.

“I have not parted ways with Stima. There was a misunderstanding in the media then since I had some personal business to attend to. I am still in charge of the team since I haven’t received any official communication of a sack from the management,” Owoko told Futaa.

Forces

The tactician had earlier claimed that there were forces in the team who wanted him out after a brilliant first leg outing.

Owoko’s arrived at the Nairobi based club at the start of the season after stints with Bandari FC and Tusker FC where he acted as an assistant to Ugandan Paul Nkata who has since left the country.

Stima who are hoping that they can feature in the Kenyan Premier League come next season are currently placed fourth with 58 points.
