FKF appeal Amrouche ban

10 July 2014, 14:57

Nairobi - FKF have appealed the touchline ban imposed on senior national team head coach Adel Amrouche ahead of their AFCON qualifier against Lesotho.

The Harambee Stars boss was punished after confronting the match officials during the return leg of their AFCON qualifier away to the Comoros in May.

However, FKF CEO Michael Esakwa is hopeful they will be able to overturn the decision and avoid having Amrouche watch both legs of second round qualifiers from the stands.

"The (CAF) disciplinary committee is going to sit on the 17th to rule the verdict," Esakwa explained to Capital Sport.

"We have filed a strong appeal since we have even forwarded the video copy of the match which was showing there were no such incidences that he is accused of.

"Personally I was there and we believe the punishment was quite hash since the coach restrained himself and was within his technical area.

"It's normal for coaches to react when referees makes a call and that's what Amrouche did, but we are optimistic the ban will be lifted."
