“Just before the league was stopped by the Covid-19 pandemic, we were unbeaten in almost ten matches and this shows the strides we had made as a team.
“As I depart, I want to thank the club management, the players, the other members of the technical bench, and everyone associated with the club, it was an honor to work with you. I wish the club all the best for the future, I believe I have put in a good foundation to steer the team forward.”
Wazito’s Chief Executive Officer Dennis Gicheru honored the departing tactician recognized the role he has played in accomplishing his mission to the fullest.
“I want to thank Coach Stewart for his contribution to the team. He arrived at a time that we were really struggling and slowly by slowly he built a strong side and I am sure that his successor will inherit a good team. As he departs, we wish him all the best for the future,” Gicheru said.
As the club restructures the new technical bench, the CEO further stated that an announcement will be made as soon as they are ready.
“We are consulting and we will be making an announcement soon,” Gicheru added.
