Former AFC Leopards coach Jan Koops has given up any hopes of handling a Kenyan Premier League (KPL) outfit this season.
Instead, the Dutchman has now set his eyes on taking over at a Division one side and help them earn promotion to the top league. Koops confirmed he has been approached by relegated KPL side Oserian who are based in Naivasha.
“The offers I was getting from some KPL sides were not worth it. The salary and benefits they were offering me did not warrant my moving out of the capital and furthermore right now all the clubs have head coaches except my former club Leopards and so I am looking elsewhere,” Koops told Goal.com.
The coach had earlier been linked with a move to Western Stima and newly promoted side Homeboyz but sources said he declined the salary that was being offered.
Koops said he has set his heart to work in the lower Division and will find more fulfillments helping such a club to make it to the KPL next season.
“I have received interest from a couple of Division One clubs but Oserian looks the likely destination. My idea is to work at a club that has good structures and devoid of wrangles so that I can work in peace and together we can achieve a lot.”
Koops was fired by Ingwe last season after the club failed to win a single trophy during a period they were tipped to lift the KPL title.
