Tanzania giants Azam FC have sacked Ugandan coach George ‘Best’ Nsimbe less than a year after he joined them on a two year deal.

Nsimbe joined the reigning CECAFA Kagame Cup winners in December 2014 as assistant to Cameroonian John Omog and few months later was named head coach when Omog was sacked.

However, the re-appointment of Briton Stewart Hall saw Nsimbe being relegated and wasn’t even sitting on the bench at the Kagame Cup.

“It’s true. I was relieved of my duties at Azam,” Nsimbe who is already back in Uganda confirmed to AirtelFootball. “The new coach (Stewart Hall) said he has his assistants and so the management terminated my contract,” he added.

The ex-KCC FC, Victors and Fire Masters coach also revealed that he is available for any job at the moment.

“I have no attachment now. My contract has been duly paid after termination and am now available to whoever is willing to offer me a coaching job.”
