Coach George ‘Best’ Nsimbe has rejected an offer for him to extend his contract that runs out at KCCA FC in January.
Nsimbe’s two year contract expires on January 31, 2015 and KCCA officials contacted him on Monday with an offer to extend it but refused it saying he had already sealed a two year deal with Tanzanian premier club Azam FC as an assistant coach.
The KCCA FC head coach told New Vision that he has accepted to deputise Cameroon born coach John Omog at Azam FC arguing that the club has better remuneration than at his current job.
Asked whether, he would reverse his decision if KCCA offered to extend his contract as head coach of the club with better remuneration, Nsimbe said that he cannot listen to any offers from a Ugandan club.
“Well, I think they (KCCA and any other local clubs) are too late. I have already made up my mind. I expect a better life in terms of everything compared to what clubs here can offer,” Nsimbe said.
“KCCA officials knew that I’m running out of contract but they could only contact me after I returned from Tanzania. It tells a lot about what one should expect,” Nsimbe added.
At Azam FC, Nsimbe expects to pocket $2500(6.7m) monthly salary, winning bonus of $50 (sh130000) alongside housing, fully fuelled car and feeding allowances when he takes up the job in February, 2015.
Nsimbe is concluding his second stint as KCCA FC coach and has won two consecutive League titles and the 2013 Mapinduzi Cup in Zanzibar.
Nsimbe was in Dar es Salam, Tanzania over the weekend and concluded the deal and agreed with Azam for him to take up the job when his contract concludes next January.
