Sony Sugar sack Sammy 'Pamzo' Omollo

The sugar millers have ended 'Pamzo's' seven month reign at the club and the 4-1 defeat to Homeboyz at the weekend seemed to have sealed his fate

Kenyan Premier League side Sony Sugar have parted ways with coach Sammy 'Pamzo' Omollo on mutual consent.

The tactician now ends his seven month reign at the sugar belt side and the 4-1 defeat to Kakamega Homeboyz over the weekend seemed to have sealed his fate.

Omollo had been struggling to keep Sony Sugar afloat after a dreadful start to the league which saw the team willow in the relegation zone. They seemed to have started picking up but the performance was never pleasing to the management.

“We have agreed with the management to end the contract on mutual consent. It was a tough job and I thank them because they really gave me time to coach the side.

“I enjoyed working at Sony Sugar and I leave the team with very good players and I believe the new coach will have an easy time,” Pamzo told Goal.

“There have been ups and downs and the ride has been very rough. I worked under so much pressure but this being my first assignment outside Nairobi, I have learnt a lot of things here and I have personally matured as a coach."

On his next step, 'Pamzo' says he will take some time off before continuing with his coaching career.

“Football is my life and I will not stop here. Of course I will take a rest and then take on a new challenge."

Omollo joined Sony from Oserian which was relegated at the end of last season. His most successive year as a coach was in 2011 when he won the Kenyan Premier League title with Tusker FC before he was sacked after failing to guide the team past the group stages of Cecafa Kagame Cup.
