Oduor has quit his role as coach without ever stepping on the touchline.

Godfrey ‘Solo’ Oduor has resigned from his role as Harambee Starlets coach without ever taking charge on the touchline just six months after he was appointed to the role.

It is believed that Oduor, who took charge of FKFPL side Nzoia Sugar after Salim Babu left the role last season, wanted to focus squarely on his new role in charge of the Premier League side.

The Football Kenya Federation (FKF) had appointed Oduor to lead the national women’s team in March, 2023 to take over from Charles Okere.

Oduor had served as Zedekiah Zico Otieno’s assistant coach at KCB as the Bankers finished fifth in the FKFPL last season.

Fast rising Highway Secondary School and Police Bullets coach Beldine Odemba is currently the bookmarkers favorite to fill the role as new starlets head coach.

Kenya is expected to report to camp on September 10, 2023 to prepare for the Women Africa Cup of Nations (WAFCON) Qualifiers which will commence on September 22 away against Cameroon, with the return leg taking place four days later on 26th September.

The winner of the encounters will then book a ticket to take part in the continental competition which will be held in Morocco next year.

Pulse Sports Kenya has approached both coaches for comment.
