Ntopwa FC owner Isaac Jomo Osman has said he is taking time before hiring a new coach to avoid disturbing the team’s promising start to the 2020/21 TNM Super League season.
“We are doing well so we want a coach who will be able to improve the team. People should be able to notice an improved performance. I know some quarters feel that I interfere with the coach’s duties but that is not the case because I only share ideas,” he said.
Ntopwa are seventh on the 16-member log table with 14 points from nine games.
Meanwhile, Osman has said he is confident Ntopwa will hire a coach before Super League games resume after the three-week Covid break.
“We know that we need to use a qualified coach as other Super League teams are doing. This is in-line with club licencing requirements. Currently discussions with a suitable qualified coach are at an advanced stage,” said Osman, who doubles as the club’s technical director.
He said the club was unable to hire a coach in time due to financial constraints.
“It is not easy to get a Caf B licence holder. We might have a lot of them but then we do not have the capacity to meet their demands. But we will soon hire one. By the time this break is over, we will have a coach,” Osman said.
