Mathare United sack head coach Salim Ali

Mathare United have parted ways with head coach Salim Ali.

Former Wazito head coach Frank Ouno is set to take over.

Mathare United is at risk of being relegated at the end of the 2021 FKF Premier League season after failing to win their 14th match of the campaign as the local football league resumed over the weekend under strict Covid-19 protocols.

The league was suspended on March 26 after President Uhuru Kenyatta banned all sporting activities in the country, owing to the increased Covid-19 infections.

Mathare played out to a 0-0 draw with Vihiga United, a result that left them bottom of the league standings with seven points.

Out of the 14 matches played, the Slum Boys have only registered one win against Nzoia Sugar back in February.

They would have had two wins but their 2-0 victory over Zoo FC in January was scrapped following FIFA’s May 4 decision to relegate Zoo FC to Division One after finding them culpable of match-fixing.

This leaves Mathare with seven points from their one win and four draws after losing matches to Sofapaka, Gor Mahia, Ulinzi Stars, Tusker, Bidco United, Nairobi City Stars, Kakamega Homeboyz, Posta Rangers and Kariobangi Sharks.
