While many are lucky to have watched him live in action back in his heydays as a Tusker FC, formerly Kenya Breweries goalkeeper, some of us only live to narrate how good of a coach, Jacob ‘Ghost’ Mulee really was with the national football team, Harambee Stars.
He is by far regarded as Kenya’s most successful coach of all time, having won the Castle Cup back in 2003 before collecting the CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup the same year, which was Harambee Stars’ first Silverware in 19 years.
The footballer turned media personality, who hosts Radio Jambo’s breakfast show, Gidi na Ghost Asubuhi alongside Joseph Ogidi, then went ahead to lead Harambee Stars to the 2004 Africa Cup of Nations tourney in Tunisia, for the first time in 12 years.
Having led Harambee Stars in two stints, Since Mulee stepped down as the national team tactician back in 2010, all we were left to cling on is his sweet memories and hopes that one day, we’ll have another coach who will emulate his success and make Harambee Stars great again.
We recently managed to film the former Tusker FC coach showing off his football prowess thanks to his Keepie-ups skills and well I came to a conclusion that, truly football is still very much alive in him.
Check out the video below and if you can’t beat the best at his skills please don’t try it at home.
