Football Kenya Federation has appointed Jacob 'Ghost' Mulee as the new Harambee Stars head coach.
Speaking on his unveiling, Mulee said: “It is an honour to be Harambee Stars coach for the second time and the task ahead now is to qualify for the 2021 AFCON.”
The tactician who doubles up as a radio host returns back at the national team helm after a ten-year absence and is known for his heroics in leading the national team to the 2004 African Cup of Nations where Kenya was eliminated at the group stage.
He replaces head coach Francis Kimanzi who parted ways with the national on mutual consent on Tuesday; Kimanzi’s last outing with the team coming in their 2-1 friendly win over Zambia last week.
Mulee didn’t name his technical bench during his unveiling with the same expected to happen before the end of the week; his first task being in the coming month in a doubleheader against Comoros in the 2021 African Cup of Nations Qualifiers.
At club level, the tactician has coached Tusker FC, Rwanda’s APR and Tanzania’s Yanga.
