Tusker FC have on Monday 3 May confirmed that George Maina has rejoined the club as an assistant to head coach Robert Matano.
A former Tusker player, Maina served in the same capacity back in 2013 and now comes in as a replacement for Charles Okere who left the position last month to take up the head coaching duties of the national Women’s senior team, Harambee Starlets.
He joins from Division One side Naivas FC.
Delighted to be back at the club and working with Matano again, Maina said: “Tusker is like home to me because I have been here for many years as a player and as a coach. I am glad to be back. When coach Matano asked whether I could come work with him, I couldn’t say no. I have worked with him before, he has coached me as a player and he is a person I hugely respect.”
Club Chairman Daniel Aduda was also left delighted by Maina’s return and added: “George Maina is a club legend having achieved so much at Tusker both as a player and as a coach. We are pleased to have him in and better because he knows the fabric of the club and it will not be hard for him to get started. I want to wish him all the best as he starts his job and hopefully we win trophies together.”
The Brewers will be hoping that the technical bench change strengthens their superb start to the season where they currently sit top of the standings with a six point cushion after 16 rounds of play.
