FOOTBALL Anthony ‘Modo’ Kimani reveals where he wants to coach next after leaving Bandari

The former AFC Leopards tactician is weighing his options carefully before making a decision

Former Bandari head coach Anthony Modo Kimani is open to offers in any division as long as it is a club whose vision aligns with his.

Kimani parted ways with Bandari at the beginning of May following a string of poor results with veteran coach Twahir Muhiddin handed the reins in an acting capacity.

The former AFC Leopards coach says he has been taking his time out to gather as much knowledge as he can as he waits for the right project and does not rule out coaching outside the country or even in the second-tier, National Super League (NSL).

“At the moment I am trying to learn as much as I can because football is an ever-evolving industry. I’m using this time that I have now where I am not attached to any team to just learn as much as I can. Try to look for as much as available learning courses for me to undertake just before I get a team to commit,” Kimani told Pulse Sports.

“A coach can coach any team at any level, I get a lot of fulfillment and enjoyment in coaching and I cannot really say I have a certain preference. I will be more than glad to coach whatever team that will approach me and sit down and agree the best possible approach for that team so I cannot rule out coaching at any level.

“Every team has different dynamics, it is all about agreeing to meet each other halfway. So as when I get a team that we can both agree on the direction that we think is the best for the club, I am sure we can work something out.”

Kimani joined Bandari in February 2021 as an assistant to Rwandan coach Andre Cassa Mbungo and took over in an acting capacity after the Rwandese tactician was sacked due to poor results.

After impressing in the second leg of the 2021-22 season, Bandari confirmed him for the just-concluded season, but he was relieved of his duties in May after the club had gone through a string of inconsistent results.

Kimani worked with Mbungo as his assistant at Leopards before he took over in an acting capacity following his departure but later quit Ingwe, then under current coach Patrick Aussems, in February 2021, only to link up with the Rwandan at the Mombasa-based side.
