Simba target former Azam trainer Omog

FORMER Azam coach Joseph Omog who was fired by the ice-cream makers at the end of the 2014/15 season, Joseph Omog, is among those targeted by Mainland premiership side Simba, impeccable sources have tipped the Guardian.

Coach Joseph Omog

The source which claimed anonymity, said negotiations are underway with the Cameroonian who helped Azam to win their maiden premiership title during the 2013/14 season.

Simba is looking for a new coach after offloading Englishman Dylan Kerr whose vacancy was temporarily filled by Ugandan Jackson Mayanja since January.
Mayanja led Simba to the third-place finish and is still with the Dar es Salaam club while awaiting the head coach to step in.

The source also revealed that Simba had initially contacted Ghanaian coach Sellas Tetteh but the Dar club looks to have lost steam in the trainer. Tetteh has been asking questions that Simba failed to answer and one of them was whether the club has its own training pitch.

Some of the coaches Simba have been engaged and then offloaded after a short spell in the past four years include Abdallah Kibaden (Tanzanian), Patrick Phiri (Zambian), Zdravko Logarusic (Croatian), Goran Kopunovic (Serbian) and Dylan Kerr (England).

Ambitious Simba have not won the premiership title since 2012 and third-place finish has been the club’s highest in the Mainland standings since 2012.
Changing coaches has been the club’s perfect habit and Omog knows this inside out after spending a spell with Azam.
