FKF Caretaker Committee conducts interviews to pick new Startlets coach
The Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Caretaker Committee Tuesday conducted interviews to pick the new head coach of the national women’s football team, Harambee Starlets.
According to Robin Toskin, a member of the committee’s secretariat, they have narrowed down to five candidates including the current boss Charles Okere, who has been at the helm of Starlets since April last year.
Others in the fray are; former Vihiga Queens coach Alex Alumira, who is currently with Tanzania’s Tiger Queens, former Harambee Starlets skipper Florence Adhiambo, Tusker FC assistant coach George Maina and former Starlets assistant coach Jackline Juma.
Okere was appointed to lead Starlets in April last year by the Nick Mwendwa-led regime, after long-serving David Ouma left on what was termed as mutual consent.
The next Starlets’ boss will come in with plate full and expectations on shoulders with the qualifiers for the 2022 Africa Women's Cup Of Nations (AWCON) knocking on the door next month.
The committee, which was formed to run football in November last year after Sports CS Amina Mohammed dissolved the FKF , is also expected to conduct similar process to find new Harambee Stars boss.
The position fell vacant following the expiry of Engin Firat's ridiculous two-month contract handed by then Mwendwa-led federation.
