Coaches appeal for government support
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.
