FKF to challenge Amrouche ban
22 July 2014, 15:04
Nairobi - The Football Kenya Federation will challenge the 12 month ban handed out to Harambee Stars coach Adel Amrouche by CAF.
In a statement Tuesday, FKF said it was apparent that the ban handed out for alleged spitting by the coach was too harsh.
The FKF did however say that in the case the ban was not changed, it would seek a new coach to take care of the national team.
Kenya Federation herewith confirms receipt of the notice of suspension of our
national senior men's team coach Adel Amrouche for a period of one year by the
Confederation of African Football.
the outset, FKF reiterates that it stands in solidarity with Mr Amrouche and
will do everything possible to ensure he continues with his work as head coach
of Harambee Stars.
this regard, the federation will invoke the right to appeal provisions as
provided for by the Statutes and policy because the decision to suspend the
coach for one year is far too harsh a disciplinary measure to be meted out by
the meantime, FKF wishes to call on all Kenyans to be calm as we pursue the
options available to us with a view to ensuring that the team is well attended
as we prepare for the crucial 2015 Africa Cup of Nations Qualifying return leg
match against Lesotho and the group stages of the campaign, which we are
confident of progressing into.
our appeal and all other channels of reprieve fail, FKF assures the country
that it has alternatives to look at and implement to ensure there is no vacuum
in the technical management of Harambee Stars now and in the future.
