Kenya Football Coaches Association (Kefoca) has urged Football Federation to involve stakeholders in their deliberations. Kefoca Chairman Ricky Solomon said many issues were not properly handled since Kefoca was not involved.
He cited appointment of National team’s handlers and sacking of coaches and subsequent poor replacements which has jolted Kenya football standards.
During a consultative meeting to map the way forward held at the Nairobi City Stadium, Solomon urged the Federation to involve all stakeholders including coaches, referee, players and even Sports writers.
He further urged their members to involve Kefoca before making deals with new clubs.
He said his Association will always be available to intervene and solve disputes involving their members and their clubs.
“We can only help and intervene when our members involve us showing their terms of contract so that we can negotiate for them when the deal fails to go through” Solomon noted adding that plans are underway to form a disciplinary committee to handle various disputes.
“We want to have one sylabus and one training system, if its 4-2-2, lets maintain it, We also demand Football instructors to be appointed strictly by Kefoca since they are our members and we know them better than the Federation”he observed.
Former Re-Union, Ulinzi Stars and Gor Mahia midfielder Tom Ogweno said it was unfair for FKF to hire a foreign coach who earns huge salary for two months while deserving local coaches are not consideded.
The meeting marked the merging of both Kefoca and Robert Matano’s Kenfoca body that was lauded by members as the best way forward.
Former International player Peter “Kaskas” Kamau lauded the merger saying members will now speak with one voice adding that there is need to put the house in order to attract goodwill and sponsors.
Other members that included Kefoca Secretary General and top coaching instructor Bob Oyugi, Gilbert Selebwa, Richard Madegwa, treasurer Yaqub Ibrahim, Nicholas Muyoti and Habil Nanjero said the merger of the two bodies will strengthen Kefoca to be a vibrant body with teeth to bite
