Mega deal that lured Paul Put away from Harambee Stars

Paul Put's departure from Harambee Stars coaching job continues to dominate discussion in football forums across the country. The Belgian left after just three months in charge with initial rumors suggesting he is headed to West Africa.

However, latest reports indicate Paul Put could be headed to coach China's second tier league (China League One)  club Xinjiang Tianshan Leopard FC.

The deep-pocketed Chinese side has put an irresistible offer that dwarfs what Football Kenya Federation (FKF) could offer.

A draft offer for the Belgian indicates a  Ksh 20.3million net signing fee,and  Ksh 4million as net monthly salary. A win will see Put pocket Ksh. 500,000 bonus while a draw makes him  Ksh 300,000 richer.

Apart from the monetary income, Paul Put will be given a company car, accommodation, two airline tickets per year between China and country of residence and as a deal sweetener, he can bring his own staff.

While in Kenya Put had to work with a team picked for him that included Stanley Okumbi and John Kamau as his assistants. Okumbi has since taken charge as interim coach with FKF working hard to fill the vacant role before Kenya takes on Ghana in a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier next month.

FKF President Nick Mwendwa was this week quoted saying Harambee Stars will soon have a " bigger and better coach" next week.Adel Amrouche’s name has popped as a possible replacement for Paul Put.
