The former Harambee stars Head Coach Jacob Mulee commonly known as Ghost Yesterday joined Gaspo Women’s Football Club as their new tactician. Mulee penned a deal with Gaspo at the time the KWPL side is in good condition, currently topping the log and also looking forward to dethroning four-time champions Vihiga Queens FC.
Gaspo moved top of the table this weekend following a 3-0 win over relegation-threatened Kayole Starlets, tied on points with Vihiga but with a two-goal advantage in goal difference.
While unveiling the new coach, Gaspo team manager Edward Githua noted that ‘Ghost’ will be in charge of the remaining eight matches and any continental club games that the team will be part of in the event of winning the league.

“We are chasing the league title and we need an experienced coach to walk with us in the remaining crucial matches. We are also preparing for the CAF Champions League. Ad
“We are not jumping the gun but have to be ready. These regional competitions require a certain level of coaching certification and we are keen not to make any drastic changes by bringing in someone new when the time comes,” Githua said.
“The first seven matches of the season were handled by Mohamed before he left. At the time, we were struggling financially as we were yet to land a sponsor. In the eighth round, former President Uhuru Kenyatta who is a friend of the team and has time and again contributed to the team’s allowances came through for us with a personal donation. Obeng has since been in charge but we knew we needed someone like Mulee in our touchline. Ghost has trained with the team for about a week now and watched the girls in action against Kayole,” Githua added.
