Newly promoted Wazito have announced the appointment of Ahmed Mohammed as a club assistant coach.

Mohammed, formerly with Mombasa-based National Super League side Modern Coast Rangers, will work under head coach Frank Ouna as the club makes its debut in the top flight league.

The youthful coach told a Kenyan daily newspaper that Premiership action was an enticing proposition to him.

“I am pleased to announce after successful negotiations that I have accepted an offer to join KPL debutants Wazito. I wish to thank the entire management and the playing unit of Modern Coast Rangers FC for their co-operation and support,” he said.

Mohammed assumed the Rangers head coach position in August 2004 when he replaced Abdulnassir Kassim.

During his tenure at the club, he managed to win the Taifa Ngano Super Cup in 2014 as well as the FKF Mifungo Cup the same year.

He has also been credited with shaping the careers of several talented players including Eric Kibiru who is currently plying his trade at Bandari, Francis Ochola who moved to Sofapaka and Francis Omondi who was recently acquired by Sofapaka.

Wazito, a University of Nairobi side, finished second on the NSL table with 80 points from 36 matches to gain automatic promotion to top flight football.

They were promoted alongside county side Vihiga United who finished top of the table with an equal number of points but a superior goal difference.
