Fomer Nakumatt coach Anthony Mwangi is the coach of the month for May.

Mwangi scooped the monthly gong barely a month after he was demoted from the position of head coach.

Mwangi’s fete saw Nakumatt became the first team to scoop both player and coach’s gong in a single month. This is after the club forward Boniface Mukhekhe was crowned last week.

The 33-year-old Mwangi was in charge of Nakumatt’s technical bench when they recorded three victories and a draw to claim the most number of league points in May. 

Ten points garnered in their best run of the season also lifted Nakumatt from relegation area to mid-table comfort.

Sofapaka also recorded three wins and a draw but Batoto Ba Mungu tactician John Baraza lost out to Mwangi on superior goal count. 

In spite of the stellar display in May, Mwangi has since been redeployed to the role of assistant with American Melis Medo taking over as the head coach.

Nakumatt launched their May campaign with a hard-fought 3-2 win over Zoo FC in Kericho followed by a two-all draw against AFC Leopards in Machakos. They then defeated Tusker FC 2-1 in Machakos before beating Posta Rangers 2-0 in the last match of the month at Camp Toyoyo Grounds.

The good run saw the Shopper move from the foot of the Kenyan Premier League table to 12th position.
