Kenyan trio of Erick Marcelo Ouma, Amos Nondi and John Macharia will have a new coach in Georgia after their top flight side, Kolkheti Poti appointed 63-year-old Alexander Stéliens the new head coach.

The club confirmed the appointment of the Ukranian on their official portal and the tactician, who has previously coached across Belgium, Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia will be replacing Gela Senaia who was shown the door last month due to a spate of poor results.

Steliens joins from Belgian side Standard Liege where he was the head coach of the club’s reserve league side. Before departing for Belgium, Steliens was in charge of Georgian side Torpedo Kutaisi who currently sit second on the Georgian top flight log.

The coach will hope he can change the fortunes at Kolkheti, with the team currently in position nine on the ten team log and having lost 1-3 at the hands of Samterdia over the weekend.
