Police Tanzania hire Hamsini as coach

MAINLAND Premier League’s new entrants Police Tanzania yesterday unveiled Malale Hamsini as the outfit’s new coach for a period of two years.

Hamsini replaces Suleiman Matola who is expected to take an assistant coach’s post at the league defending champions Simba SC.
The introduction of Hamsini, the former Ndanda FC head coach, took place in Dar es Salaam yesterday.

Police Tanzania chairman, Charles Mkumbo, said they are delighted to land the services of Hamsini whom he described as one of the best gaffers on the local scene.

He also thanked Matola for the services he offered to the outfit during his stay.

“We are happy to land the services of Hamsini, we believe that in him we have found a good coach who will help us realize our goals and ambitions,” he said.

On his remarks, Hamsini said he will work hard to help his club realize their goals and described the appointment as an honour to him.

“I feel privileged and honoured to be appointed head coach of Police Tanzania, I promise to work hard at my new team, and I’m looking forward to good working relationship with my players and fellow officials at the club,” he said.

Hamsini also said he will sit with his backroom staff to look into how they can work for the benefit of the team.

Under Matola’s tutelage, Police Tanzania Football Club has become one of the feared teams in the league.

The side managed to notch 3-3 draw with Yanga in the former’s opening match.
