Former Harambee Stars and Gor Mahia coach Zedekiah "Zico" Otieno has returned to Sony FC and will be officially unveiled today.
Zico will head the Premier League side after the club fired Sammy Omollo earlier this week following a string of poor results for the Awendo town based club.
Sony chairman Christopher Odero said the club had confidence Otieno will help the club improve.
Yesterday was mostly spent fine-tuning terms of service behind closed doors at the Sony Sugar Company complex.
"We are yet to agree on the length or duration of the contract but we have chosen Zico as we have faith in his ability to pull the team up the league table," Odero said.
Currently the club is just above relegation zone at 13th with 16 poits from a similar number of games.
The former Gor Mahia tactician will be under pressure from both the fans and officials to turn round the club's fortunes.
Omollo was fired after the team lost 4-1 to Kakamega Homeboyz last weekend.
The Sony team management believe they have quality players and are still well placed to finish within the top eight, which is the team's target.
"We replaced the coach early in order to give the new coach time to get to know the players better during the two week international match break before tackling Muhoroni Youth," he said.
Sony only needs to win three games in a row to bounce into the top eight.
This will be Otieno's second stint at the club he left in December last year after a year.
