– He however did not take the sacking lightly and went on to sue the FKF over wrongful dismissal
– The FKF have thus been given till the end of October to pay the Belgian KSh 108 million or face an ouster from AFCON qualifiers
The football Kenya Federation has been ordered to pay KSh 108 million to former Harambee Stars head coach Adel Amrouche for wrongful termination.
Amrouche was sacked in 2014 in controversial fashion by the then FKF president Sam Nyamweya following a poor run of form and a disappointing loss to Lesotho in a 2015 Africa Nations qualifier.
The irate Amrouche went on to sue the FKF at Fifa soon after he was shown the door, in a suit that saw him paid KSh 60 million.
His war against the Kenya football governing body was not over in his books as he pursued justice further by lodging an appeal at the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in Lausanne for Sport in a bid to get more money.
Nick Mwendwa, the FKF president tried to appeal the decision to pay the Belgian but lost the court battle.
The new setback means the FKF have until the end October to compensate Amrouche of face severe consequences.
Failure to pay the former coach could mean Kenya will not be allowed to compete in the 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifiers in case of a default.
Amrouche was appointed as Harambee Stars head coach in 2013 in what was a promising deal and he had his moments in the dugout.
One of his biggest highlights was the unforeseen draw with an extremely powerful Nigeria side in Calabar in a 2014 World Cup qualification match.
He is currently the boss of the Botswana national team after stints with the Libya national team as well as Algeria clubs MC Alger and USM Alger.
Speaking on the new dilemma, the FKF boss said he would reach out to Fifa to have the deadline to pay Amrouche extended.
