Amrouche rejects Stars return, demands Sh60million payout
Former Harambee Stars coach Adel Amrouche has rejected an opportunity to make a comeback in the same capacity, Nairobi News understands.
Football Kenya Federation (FKF) are currently searching for a new coach for the national team in the wake of the recent abrupt resignation of Paul Put under a cloud of controversial.
According to FKF chief executive Robert Muthomi, Amrouche ‘doesn’t seem willing’ to make a return.
Amrouche is claiming his dues accrued by former office and he took the case to FIFA. We have reached out but he does not seem willing to take up the role https://t.co/azpLubL6lw

Nairobi News also understands that Amrouche has since landed a lucrative job as coaches instructor in his native Belgium. He also doubles up as a pundit at top Asian Sports Channel BEin Sports.
The former Burundi coach is also said to be confident of winning a case of wrongful dismissal which he has lodged against FKF at Fifa.
Should he win this case, he is in line for at least Sh60 million in compensation.
Meanwhile, FKF has announced that a new Stars coach will be unveiled in ‘the coming days’.
