Just a day after guiding AFC Leopards to the GoTV Shield Cup, James Nandwa has been rewarded with a two year permanent deal as head coach of the club.
The Kenyan ex-International who handled the Harambee Stars during last year’s Cecafa Challenge Cup in Kampala was brought on board by the club management in August as an interim coach following the sacking of Belgian Lucy Eymael and he has done well guiding the club to the GoTV Cup and also managed to finish runners up in the league behind winners Gor Mahia FC.
Club chairman Allan Kasavuli told Goal that they extended Nandwa’s stay at the club. “We are happy to finish the season with a trophy. Our target when we took over was to achieve what we have as well as finish runners-up in Kenyan Premier League.
“Nandwa has been instrumental in helping us do this and we want to work with him next year again to do even bigger things.”
He is expected to guide Ingwe to more success next year as they return to continental football in the Caf Confederations Cup for the first time in three years.
