The development followed the club’s 3-1 loss to Simba at the National Stadium in Dar es salaam where on-form striker Meddie Kagere struck a brace with skipper John Raphael Bocco getting the other.

Prior Simba’s loss, Azam had not won any game in the last games, registering three one all draws with Alliance, Lipuli and Coastal Union as well as one loss to Tanzania Prisons.

Van Der Pluijm, 70, is a former goalkeeper who also managed Den Bosch until 1995 and SBV Excelsior before a spell in Ghana.

The club’s youth coach Major Abdul Mingange, a CAF ‘A’ licenced coach is the interim head coach, assisted by Iddi ‘Cheche’ Nassor.
