Immediate former Kakamega Homeboyz assistant coach Patrick Odhiambo on Tuesday was appointed as the new head coach of Tanzanian Premier League side Biashara United.
The former Gor Mahia assistant coach reportedly signed a two-year deal with Biashara whose main goal is to finish in the top four of the local league.
“The management of Biashara United has today officially introduced our new head coach Patrick Odhiambo” read a statement by the club.
Odhiambo will be filling the void left by former Kenyan international and Sony Sugar coach Francis Baraza, who led Biashara for the better part of the season, before joining another Tanzania side Kagera Sugar.
The former Sony Sugar tactician’s main objective is to ensure the team finishes in the fourth position and build a formidable and competitive squad for next season.
"I am happy to work with Biashara, a very strong competitive side in the league. It is a challenge that I have accepted and I am ready to help the team achieve the set objectives,” Odhiambo said during his unveiling.
Biashara United are currently fourth in the Vodacom Premier League table on 44 points after 28 matches. They have 12 wins, eight draws, and as many losses. The team has further scored 24 goals and conceded 23.
Simba SC tops the log on 61 points from 25 games.
