Stanley Okumbi confirms to Goal.com that he has no plans of ditching the 'slum boys' despite being linked to vacant jobs at AFC Leopards and KCB
Mathare United tactician Stanley Okumbi says he wants to complete the ‘project’ he began last season at the league side and is not tempted to jump ship despite a number of teams seeking for his services.
The youthful coach who guided the ‘slum boys’ to a Top 8 finish in the 2012 season after a horrendous start to the campaign, says that his main goal is to take Mathare back to its glory days.
The slum dwellers won their maiden league trophy in 2008 and have never replicated the feat.
“Coaching is all about achievements. It is a job you have to do when you have the passion. I have been a member of this family (Mathare) and the best I can do is to help them scale the heights,” Okumbi told Goal.com.
Mathare began the 2012 season on a shaky note registering a win less run that claimed his predecessor Gabriel ‘Kingi’ Njoroge and the new man at the helm, insists that though he knows there are several interests to sway him from his current job, he wants to see his 'project' through.
“What you have heard are rumours, I have also read them from the media, but I am keen on continuing with my work. I am gearing up for the pre-season and how to do well next season.”
Okumbi has been linked with a move to big spending AFC Leopards and the vacant job at Kenya Commercial Bank (KCB).
