Kenya facing World Cup ban Over Coach Amrouche Settlement

FKF president Nick Mwendwa

Kenya is facing a World Cup ban by Fifa, over the financial saga surrounding the settlement of money owed to former Harambee Stars head coach Adel Amrouche for unlawful sacking.

Amrouche ruled out giving any further extension to Kenya’s football federation (FKF) for to pay him delayed funds.

FKF had a deadline of Friday 24 April to pay Sh109 million in compensation to Amrouche as  instructed  by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in October last year failure to which the country will be blocked from the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

Fifa had warned that failure to pay the coach his money would  result in exclusion from the World Cup and had in the latest communication to FKF given the Federation upto April 30 to conclude the payment to avoid further sanctions.

The world football governing body is expected to make it;s decision on May 18 but FKF has maintained that it does not have the money to pay Amrouche.

“We have received the response from FIFA and they have said they will make the final decision on May 18th. We will wait for it but as at now, we do not have that kind of money to pay out. We are struggling to make other ends meet and as at now, it is difficult for us,” FKF boss Nick Mwendwa said in a press briefing.

The government said it would not be involved in the scandal and asked the Federation to take care of its own mess
