The administrator believes that the appointment of the Turkish coach will not help solve the problems facing the national team
The former chairman of the Kenya Football Association, Sam Nyamweya, questioned the appointment of the new Haranby star coach Enjin Ferrat, saying that in Africa or the world has never happened before a coach signed a 60-day contract.
On Sunday, FKF announced the 51-year-old Turkish tactician to replace Jacob “Ghost” Mulli, who parted ways with the national team a week ago after only 11 months in charge of the national team.
Nyamweya described the new appointment as “football history”, saying that he has never seen a coach agree to a 60-day short-term contract anywhere in the world.
Who will give him a work permit?
“Who will give him a two-month work permit?” Nyamweya asked a question Target When asked to comment on the new appointment. “It is a huge shame for what the Federation has done.
“In my entire football management career, I have never seen such an appointment, and it does not work. This is a mutual contract between the two parties. It does not make sense to me. It is unacceptable. It is a pity. We have not reached such a low level.”
Nyamweya further questioned why FKF chose to hire a coach. Despite his poor record in Moldova, he recently coached in Moldova before accepting a job offer from Kenya.
“Our football is being forgotten because why should we hire a coach who failed from Moldova? He is a loser because he didn’t win a game there. He played 11 games and lost my game. This shows that he is not a good coach,” Nyamweya continued.
“This is a disgrace to the appointment and a mockery of Kenyan football. The sooner stakeholders get together to discuss the way forward, the better.
“I am 100% sure that he will not take Kenya to the World Cup. He has failed before and will fail in Kenya, but if we fail to qualify, I will not blame the coach, I will blame the Football Association.”
“In five years, we have seen the replacement of six coaches under the Mwindwa regime, which means that when this new coach leaves, it will be seven coaches. [under him], That is, a large number of coaches leave the team in a short time.
“It seems that something went wrong. We were not told, why did the coaches walk away after joining?”
Why were Muri and Kidmanzi fired?
Nyamweya further criticized the federation for firing and hiring coaches, but did not explain why they made this decision.
“When Francis Kidmanzi was fired, the Federation refused to tell Kenyans why they made this decision, and when Muli left, they also remained silent and refused to explain what happened. This meant they were hiding something,” Nyamweya exclaimed.
“This is a public office. Officials are accountable to Kenyans, so they must be held accountable. They will know that the position they hold belongs to the public and not personal property.”
Coach Firat’s first mission will be the upcoming 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, playing against Mali at home and away respectively on October 8th and 12th.
