Pepeta sources can authoritatively reveal that Trucha will be arriving in the country on Monday 5 October to take over the team with Anthony Kimani set to leave for further studies.
Kimani will be expected to be out of the country in the coming year and will serve as Truch’s assistant during the period he will be around to help the new coach with the transition; his schooling expected to be sponsored by the club.

Trucha has previously been in the books of Botswana giants Township Rollers where he took charge from July 2019 but he was shown the door at the club after failing to qualify for the CAF Champions’ League group stages; his team losing to Tanzania’s Yanga 2-1 in the preliminary round on aggregate.
Apart from Rollers, the tactician journey has seen him coach most teams down South with Orapa United (Botswana) and South Africa’s FC Tygerberg being the other teams he’s coached.
He was an assistant manager at FC Zbrojovka Brno in Czech a role he had at Viktoria Plzen too.
