Former Thika United and KCB Assistant Coach Lauds the current FKF efforts in training Coaches and increased capacity building

Published

on

Former Thika United and KCB Assistant Coach Moses Irungu has expressed his sentiments on the coaching courses being offered by the Football Kenya Federation.

The current Federation has in the past four years trained over 2800 coaches in the Basic/Advanced (CAF D License) Level and a further 400 coaches in the CAF C Level.

The courses are offered free of charge across all the 20 FKF Branches, going a long way in not only building capacity in our grassroots coaches but also bridging an education gap that had denied local coaches job opportunities both at home and abroad.

Most recently, the Federation in conjunction with FIFA, actualized a first of its kind instructors’ course in the country which saw 60 Instructors get certified by FKF

“The coaching courses being offered by the current regime is a big plus to football, in that the players are being trained by more experienced coaches hence great improvement in the standards of football in the country,”said Moses Irungu

He further urged former football players to take up the coaching courses to increase their knowledge in football so as to build football in the country.

“I would like to urge former footballers to come forward and take up coaching courses to up their knowledge and use it to build football in the country,”continued Coach Irungu.

Published

on

FKF Nairobi West Branch Chairman Caleb Malweyi has lauded the gains made by the current Federation under the leadership of Nick Mwendwa to boost football in the country.

Harambee Stars qualified for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations for the first time in 15 years. The team came third in Group C, behind Algeria, and Senegal and ahead of Tanzania.

Harambee Starlets made their debut in the 2016 Africa Women Cup of Nations after the current tenure re-introduced the FKF Women Premier League and Division One Leagues which gave life to the then dying senior women’s national team.

The team also closed the year 2019 as champions of the CECAFA Women Championships in Tanzania for the first time ever.

The current regime actualized the inconceivable idea of having a junior national team and developed the National Center of Excellence that harbors the team and helps nurture the young players who will then be pooled to the National Senior team, Harambee Stars.

“We have made gains in women football, and youth football under the able leadership of Nick Mwendwa. We want to build on these gains in the coming four years,”said Chairman Malweyi.
