Many Kenyan coaches are now smiling all the way to the bank after the current FKF administration affected measures to empower them through training, a FIFA coach instructor has said.
As former Harambee Stars Captain and FIFA Coach Instructor Musa Otieno, Ongao aptly put it, the current regime’s decisive step to building capacity among local coaches have not only fattened their wallets but also uplifted standards of football in the country.
Otieno, a beneficiary of the education programs, says they are ready to pass down the knowledge to grassroots coaches so as to equip them with the right information.
“I thank the current Federation for giving us the opportunity to attend these courses that help build our capacity and hopefully we will impact the knowledge we have gained to the coaches and players so as to help develop football in the country,” he said.
