Nairobi City Stars coach Jan Koops has given the clearest indicator that he is set to join former Kenyan Premier League champions Tusker by confirming that Saturday's match against Chemelil Sugar will be his last at the club.
Koops has been linked to a move to Ruaraka with sources at the club informing Goal that he is set to be unveiled next week taking the place of besieged Robert Matano.
On Thursday, Koops confirmed that his short contract with City Stars expires after Saturday's fixture but remained non-committal about his future.
"My agreement with City Stars was for two months and this comes to an end after Saturday's match in Chemelil. I have already told the management and will tell the players before we play on Saturday.
"At the moment, my focus is to help City Stars survive and then we can think about the future. Let us talk about this next week," he said when pressed further.
City Stars chairman Peter Jabuya said it is unfortunate to let Koops go and confirmed that indeed they had a short term contract with the coach.
"Our agreement was for seven matches after which we would sit down ad agree on a longer term engagement if he is still interested. At the moment our focus is on how we can survive relegation and the issue of the coach can come later.”
