Both Kimanzi and Kerr enjoyed similar form in the first month of the new season, each picking three wins and a draw, but the Dutch-trained Kimanzi found favor with the SJAK football committee which handed him the diadem after a final round of voting. “It is a surprising award because as much as we had worked hard, I didn’t expect this to come here today. But this is not my own work, it is the effort put in by the players and the other technical bench members and the management as well,” Kimanzi said as he received his award at the club’s training ground on Wednesday.This is Kimanzi’s second coach of the month award having also claimed the same prize in the opening month of last season.In the month of February, Mathare swatted aside sugar-milling clubs Nzoia and Sony then dropped two points against Ulinzi Stars picking a barren draw. They wound up the month with a 3-1 thrashing of Sofapaka to finish off with 10 points out of a possible 12.Mathare United head coach Francis Kimanzi poses with his players after receiving his February Coach of the Month award at the club’s training ground on April 11, 2018.

They have only lost one tie against AFC Leopards.0Shares0000(Visited 3 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
