The Star (Kenya) - - Sports -

Over 50 football coaches from Keri­cho County are un­der­go­ing a 10-day Fifa coach­ing course at Keri­cho Teach­ers Train­ing Col­lege. The event which started last Wed­nes­day will end on Wed­nes­day next week.

Those un­der­go­ing the train­ing yes­ter­day urged the Min­istry Sports to set aside funds for coaches train­ing in the coun­try.

Football Kenya Fed­er­a­tion (FKF) Keri­cho sub-branch chair­man Leonard Onchiri while thank­ing na­tional body for ap­proach­ing Fifa to spon­sor the on-go­ing train­ing, said proper train­ing would help Kenyan coaches iden­tify un­tapped tal­ents among the youth and ex­pose them to high pro­file and pro­fes­sional soccer for their liveli­hood. FKF in­struc­tor Fred Serenge con­curred with the par­tic­i­pants’ sen­ti­ments and said they would present their griev­ances to the con­cerned min­istry. “It would be very much ideal if the gov­ern­ment can help FKF to train lo­cal coaches, who han­dle small teams.
