FKF staring at Ksh. 10 million fine by CAF
Football Kenyan Federation (FKF) may be headed to a Ksh. 10 million (1,000 dollar) fine by the Confederation of African Football.
This is after Harambee Stars fans threw missiles onto the pitch during the 1-0 defeat to Guinea Bissau on Sunday causing the temporary abandonment of the match.
All this started at the 81st minute after the West Africans assumed the lead but Stars players led by goalkeeper Arnold Origi bitterly protested.
However, normalcy was later restored by the police with the match preceding to its logical conclusion.
And once the Zimbabwean match referee and match commissioner table their reports for analysis at CAF, the continental body will most likely wield the axe and come hard on Kenya.
Another danger is that Stars could be ordered to play their next home match behind closed doors.
FKF earlier condemned the ugly violence with its CEO, Robert Muthomi stetting that the behavior of a small section of fans who acted irresponsibly during the match should not be repeated.
As this happens Harambee Stars tactician Stanley Okumbi has now turned the heat on his fellow coaches claiming that unnamed coaches have been unhappy with his appointment and are working hard to bring him down.
Speaking to the sports journalists, , Okumbi said that from the first day of his appointment, the chorus of disapproval were in plenty adding that they have not stopped rumbling.
“There are people who were unhappy with my appointment because they feel they should have gotten the job instead.
“It’s all over and its well-known who they are. I won’t say names but even journalists know them,” said Okumbi.
He came under fire on Sunday in the wake of the Bissau defeat with the fans pelting him with water bottle to express their disappointment.
He took the mantle of the team a month ago and has registered two successive defeats to Guinea Bissau in the two legs.
