Immediate former Sofapaka head coach John Baraza has dropped a message of gratitude to the club a few days after he stepped aside from his duties. The former Kenyan international thanked the club for the support offered during his time there.
According to the club, the coach is being positioned for a learning sting in Europe to improve his skills and add papers. The club communicated that he will be stepping aside after just three matches in the season, and he has described his time at the team as both amazing and satisfactory.
In the three matches he was in charge of this season, the team lost two and won one. It was after the 3-0 loss to AFC Leopards at Kasarani on Match Day 3 that the message was communicated by the club, quoting president, Elly Kalekwa.
Thank you so much
“Thank you so much Sofapaka. I have only wonderful and pleasant memories to go with. My time in the family was amazing and satisfying. Once again, thank you prezda; you are one amazing human being. Just wish Kenyan football gets more people like you, the industry could grow to a level that we all want,” he posted.
Baraza’s exit cuts his links with the club either as a player or coach which dates back to 2008 when he joined the team as a player and went on to bag two top scorers’ accolades. He also helped the team win the 2009 league title.
As he departs, another former Kenyan international, Mike Mururi, who was his assistant will be taking over on temporary capacity. The team starts life after Baraza with a home game against Kariobangi Sharks at the Danson Mwanyumba Stadium in Wundanyi on Saturday 19th December.
