KCB Football Club (KCB FC) head coach John Kamau has left the National Super League (NSL) outfit.

KCB FC assistant coach Elvis Ayany will steer the team during the remaining fixtures of the NSL as the bankers angle for a return to top flight football.

While announcing the departure, the club thanked the tactician for his service.

“We thank the coach for his contribution towards the club. We are keen to continually build a strong squad and tap it to its full potential. We wish him well in his next endeavours.” said Paul Russo, the club’s patron, who is also the KCB Group HR Director.

KCB FC is currently fourth on the NSL standings with a game in hand. With only seven games to go before the end of the season, KCB have amassed 57 points, seven points off the league leaders Western Stima.

Kamau was appointed as the KCB head coach on January 11 replacing Leonard Saleh, who was also relieved of his duties after failing to secure promotion last season.

Ayany, a former KCB player, certainly has his work cut out as the bankers aim for a strong finish and grab one of the two automatic promotion slots.

They were relegated from the Kenyan Premier League in 2015.
