Sofapaka have parted ways with Coach Stewart Hall, and is now set to rejoin his former club Azam in the course of week after the Tanzanian club offered him his old job back and Sofapaka were unable to match the offer.
“I’m leaving Sofapaka for Azam. The club has apologized for what it did and I’m going back to Tanzania. I will leave Nairobi on Wednesday night,” he told supersport.com.
“We had a meeting with the club president Elly Kalekwa on Monday and we agreed that I will part ways with them because they can’t match my offer. In my contract it spells out that I have to give one month’s notice but since I didn’t I will give up this month’s salary instead.”
“Sofapaka is a good club and I’m pleased with their gesture. However, Azam, want me back and they have a better offer. I’ll be meeting club president later on and a statement will be released by the club on the development.”
Hall joined Sofapaka as Salim Ali’s replacement in September but has had a less than impressive start winning only one league match, two defeats and two draws.
Assistant coach David Ouma will take over in the interim and will be incharge for their last two league matches against KCB and Karuturi Sports.
Hall makes a return to the club which he led to winning Mapinduzi Cup and finished second in the Urafiki Cup, Vodacom Premier League and Kagame Cup.
