Belgian coach Adel Amrouche has been awarded kshs 108 million in costs and damages for wrongful dismisssal, by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).
Amrouche contrcated was terminated by the then FKF president Sam Nyamweya in 2014 after Harambee stars loss to Lesotho in the 2015 Africa Nations Qualifier. He had only served a couple of months of his 5 year contract offered to him by the Ministry ofSports after President Uhuru Kenyatta’s recommendation.
The Belgian national first proceeded to sue FKF at Fifa and was awarded kshs 60 million.
The ruling has also ordered FKF to pay Amrouche before the end of October 2019, and risk failing to be allowed to compete in the 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifiers in case of a default. Nick Mwendwa FKF president, contested that appeal but losyt out.
“I will ask Fiafa to give us an extension. We are paying for the ills by the former management. I will talk to the government and request they assist us in paying Amrouche” expained Mwendwa.
Amrouche after being sacked he proceeded to coach Libya’s national team, and Algerian clubs MC Alger and USM Alger. Currently he’s the coach of Botswana national team.
