Kenya Risk Missing World Cup Over Dismissal of Former Coach

By Carlos Onyango / October 4, 2019 | 10:49 am




Kenya will be forced to pay former head coach a lump sum of 108 million shillings or risk being banned from participating in FIFA World Cup 2022.

Former Harambee Stars head coach Adel Amrouche had filed a petition to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) citing that Kenya had sacked him immaturely and unfairly.

Mr. Amrouche had been sacked from coaching the national team after he had been banned by the Confederations of African Cup (CAF) for spitting on a referee during a football match.

The Belgian international received a one-year ban from CAF back in August 2014, when Kenya was playing in Comoros.

Amrouche made an appeal to CAF, but Kenya sacked him from coaching Harambee stars before the final ruling was made.

After being sacked from heading Harambee Stars, Amrouche’s ban was lifted by CAF, which prompted him to seek justice from FIFA’s Dispute Resolution Chambers and Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).

Amrouche demanded a compensation of 130 million shillings from the Football Kenya Federation(FKF) which was headed by Sam Nyamweya at the time he was fired.

Amrouche had remained with five years to serve as the Harambee Stars’ head coach according to the terms of the contract he had signed with Kenya, thus he was supposed to receive compensation for the remaining years.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) ruled that Amrouche deserved the compensation, stating that the country would risk missing the forthcoming FIFA World Cup in 2022 if it fails to comply.

FKF chairperson Nick Mwendwa said that the ruling was true, stating that Mr. Amrouche was sacked during the tenure of Sam Nyamweya.

“It’s true CAS has awarded Amrouche 86,000,000 and an additional 22,000,000 as of the cost for the case. We have to pay this amount by October 19,” Mwendwa said.

Kenya might be locked out of the World Cup 2022 qualifiers or any other international competition if they fail to pay Aden Amrouche by October 19, 2019.
