Amrouche ready for Stars' challenge



Belgian Coach Adel Amrouche arrived back in Nairobi on Sunday as the federation awaits to unveil him as the new national team coach.

Amrouche who was present in Libya when Harambee Stars drubbed Libya 3-0 in an international friendly told supersport.com that he saw committed players but added that a lot of work had to be done ahead of the team's World cup qualifier match against Nigeria next month.

"I am happy to be back in Nairobi and I was happy to see Stars’ restless spirit when they played Libya last week."

"The team is good but a lot of work has to be done in specific areas so as to be able to cope with teams like Nigeria and the remaining group teams. I was excited to see young and talented players like David Gateri and Francis Kahata who are a bonus to the team," Amrouche told supersport.com.

"I have followed Kenyan football for a long time and I know many players who can make a difference. For now I don't want to talk a lot as I will meet with the federation president to finalise on issues before I can embark on proper training ahead of the crunch matches," Amrouche added.

Amrouche was in Nairobi a week ago to discuss with the FKF who were impressed with his credentials which entails focus on the youth who he believes are the core of football development.

He will take over the position that fell vacant after the sudden departure of coach Henry Michel in December last year.

Amrouche’s last station was in Burundi where he spent five years at the helm.
