Kenya forge Korea relationship



After a meeting between Football Kenya Federation (FKF) officials and a special delegation from the Republic of Korea, it was agreed that the two countries form a working relationship that could see Kenya’s Harambee Stars train in Korea.

This is in addition to organising a friendly match pitting the Stars against the South Korean national team ahead of the forthcoming World Cup qualifiers.

The visiting delegation, which included five members of parliament, was led by Korean ambassador to Kenya Chan Woo Kim.

Former Korea international player Choi Jae Sung was also in attendance, as were Kim Hack Yong, Kim Sun Tae and Hong Younpyo.

“We are very happy to note that Kenyan football has now moved to greater heights after the election of the current office and that is why the Korean government is willing to accord assistance to the association. We shall continue with this cooperation as we aim to develop the game,” said Woo Kim.

The Korean government will be hosting the World Youth Soccer Congress in mid May 2013 and Kenya, together with two other African countries, will be sending a representative to the event.

In the meeting, the FKF was represented by chairman Sam Nyamweya, Robert Asembo (acting vice-chairman), Hussein Terry (youth chief), Tom Onyango Alila ( head of futsal) and Michael Esakwa (secretary general).
