Jacob ‘Ghost’ Mulee, the Harambee Stars coach has categorically stated he will not resign. That is even if the team fails to make it to the Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon. He also says he is not concerned with calls by fans to have him fired. This is after losing an AFCON qualifying match. The 52-year-old tactician took over the mantle to handle the national team after replacing Francis Kimanzi on a three-year deal. He has already handled two matches – managing a 1-1 draw against Comoros in Kenya before losing 2-1 against the same nation in Moroni on Sunday.
The loss against Comoros left the team with minute chance to make it to the AFCON finals to be staged in Cameroon. They have managed three draws and lost one match. They have two matches to end the campaign.

Jacob ‘Ghost’ Mulee: I have targets
Jacob ‘Ghost’ Mulee told the press that he has resigned before, and it is not a problem. But for now, he has set himself targets, which he wants to achieve with the team. So, the resigning days ended a long time ago. According to him, he will fight to achieve his targets unless FKF decides to sack him.
On his promise to the fans after losing the away match, Mulee said that he loves soccer like every Kenya. However, he added that the national team is not good enough because local leagues have been suspended. He added that that will boost Kenya’s performance.
“We don’t have a league being played in the country [because of the Covid-19 pandemic] and it is affecting our national team’s performance, unless we start playing then I will keep using the players I tend to think are fit to play.”
Mulee has also called on the Kenyan government and football heads to work out ways that will permit fans to join future national team matches.Follow us in social media:
