Siasia keen on Kenyan job



Nigerian coach Samson Siasia has expressed interest in the vacant Harambee Stars’ job.

SuperSport.com understands that the tactician would be extremely tempted by an invitation to manage the Stars.

"Managing the Kenyan national team would be an exciting opportunity for me. They have such enormous talent, with players in the local leagues and in Europe. It would not take so long before they become a formidable force in football," the tactician said.

Kenya are in the same group as Nigeria in the Fifa 2014 World Cup Qualifiers - both teams will meet on the 22nd of March 2013 in Nigeria.
