Amrouche set for Stars job



Belgian Adel Amrouche is set to be named as the new Harambee Stars coach.

Football Kenya Federation (FKF) chairman Sam Nyamweya over the weekend said that a new coach would be unveiled in the next two weeks in readiness for the World Cup qualifying clash against Nigeria in March.

Supersport.com can authoritatively report that Amrouche is lined to take over the job left vacant after the departure of Frenchman Henry Michel. He was in the country for the past one week for discussions with the federation.

The source who sought anonymity further intimated to supersport.com that Amrouche will travel to Tunisia to take a look at the team when they play Libya in an international friendly.

"Amrouche impressed the federation and he has the qualities for being the man to drive Harambee Stars ambitions to greater heights. He is focused on youth programmes and we believe he has the capacity to rebuild the team as it seeks to move forward after the recent poor performances."

"He is expected to travel to Tunisia where he will take notes on the sides and he will eventually come back to Kenya after the where he will be unveiled as coach. A lot of important people have vouched for his experience and you could see he is the man who nurtured Burundi who eliminated us from CHAN," the source told supersport.com.

Amrouche left the country on Saturday after a week in the country where he had talks with Nyamweya and some of his executive committee members.

Amrouche last call of duty was in Burundi where he coached for five years. A holder of a Uefa professional diploma, he also has a Masters in Scientific Sports Research from France University and is also a football instructor in Brussels.

He has had a chequered career in Africa where he coached DR Congo side Motema Pembe for three years, Equatorial Guinea national team, clubs in Ukraine, Belgium and Azerbaijan before finally moving to Burundi national team where he was coach for five years.

He also works as a football analyst in big football events for Arabic TV and Al Jazeera.
