Timbe Headed for Sofapaka Exit Door


Ugandan Sofapaka manager, Sam Timbe, will leave the 2009 Kenya Premier League Champions in August.

Timbe, one of the best managers in the league, has just one month left on his contract but is unlikely to sign an extension.

Timbe has reportedly received offers from other clubs with Tusker (who are due to sack manager Francis Kimanzi) leading the chase for his signature. With one Gotv Shield title to his credit, the former Sports Villa man sees his future elsewhere with his current side sitting second on the KPL log.

“My contract expires in August and am not keen to renewing it. From next month, I will consider my options. I am not going to say what will happen but a man has to live,” he said.

The weekend’s 1-0 loss to a depleted AFC Leopards side was a major blow to the 54-year-old’s quest to win the local league title for Batoto Ba Mungu.

A mass player exit is expected at the club which may have convinced Timbe to end his relationship with the club.

Several key players are already heading out with influential forward Abdoul Fiston Razak already signed by South African side Mamelodi Sundowns and the likes of Elly Asieche, Danson Kago and Enock Agwanda due to follow.
