Adel Amrouche

Harambee Stars will have a new foreign coach soon but that will not be Adel Amrouche as he has turned down overtures from Football Kenya Federation (FKF) to take up the role.

According to FKF CEO Robert Muthomi, Amrouche’s main concern currently is receiving resolving his case with FKF currently being handled by FIFA.

“Amrouche is claiming his dues accrued by former office and he took the case to FIFA. We have reached out but he does not seem willing to take up the role,” Muthomi Tweeted in a response to a follower’s question.

Amrouche, who coached Harambee Stars between 2013 and 2016, has sued FKF over wrongful termination of his services and could pocket Sh120 million if his case is successful. He is currently attached to Union sportive de la médina d'Alger, (USM) a football club based in the city of Algiers besides being soccer analyst at Bein Sports

Despite his good credentials and popularity among Kenyan fans, Amrouche’s stance will not deprive Kenya of a good coach as over 105 foreign coaches have applied for the Harambee Stars job.

 

 “Put is not the last Coach in the world. 105 applications all foreign at last count,” Robert Muthomi Tweeted.

The job became vacant following the departure of Belgian Paul Put who claimed he was forced out but in a rejoinder, FKF rubbished the allegations.

The new coach’s main task will be seeing Kenya through 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers. Kenya hosts Ghana on 7th September in a Group F match in Nairobi.
