In the past weeks rumors has been rife that ex AFC Leopards assistant coach Nicholas Muyoti was on the verge of sealing a move to Thika United and it has come to pass as the immediate former Zetech FC coach has been confirmed at the Brookside sponsored side as their new assistant coach.

Muyoti joins James Nandwa with the head coach said to have preferred him due to his experience in the top flight which he deemed valuable for his team and according to the club in a statement on their official portal, the duo together with Joseph Ruto, the goalkeeper trainer,  will complete the team’s technical bench.

In his unveiling, the clubs’ CEO Mr.Michael Muriuki noted:  “I'm proud as a father to see one of our old boys coming back to work with us in a different capacity and I believe his input and past experience with this club will be of great help to us.”

Muyoti himself represented Thika United in 2007 and 2008 as a player where he led the team to Transparency Cup finals then under Coach Mickey Weche. The club has had no assistant coach since the appointment of James Nandwa who joined the team in mid-2015 after the sacking Moses Irungu who had held the position under the tutelage of coach John Kamau who has since been appointed the head coach of the country’s Under 20 team.
