Kenya technical bench sacked

Adel Amrouche

Football Kenya Federation (FKF) President Sam Nyamweya has disbanded the technical bench of the national team Harambee Stars after the loss to Lesotho in an Afcon 2015 qualifier on Sunday.

Stars were held to a barren draw at Nyayo seeing the Southern African country progress to the group stages 1-0 on aggregate thanks to a lone goal victory in Maseru two weeks ago.

“The federation has given the technical bench all the necessary support during the qualifiers but they have failed to deliver,” Nyamweya said.

“We shall inform all Kenyans of the new restructuring of the entire technical bench soon,” he added.

The sack affects Belgian head coach Adel Amrouche, Technical Director Jacob Mulee, assistants James Nandwa and Ken Odhiambo who all received their marching orders minutes after the match.

Amrouche was appointed in February 2013 to replace Frenchman Henry Michel. Last week Caf issued a one year ban to the tactician accused of spitting on a match official away in Lesotho.

Mulee who was technical director was the coach the last time that Kenya qualified for Afcon back in 2004.
