51-year old Turkish tactician Engin Firat has been unveiled as the new Harambee Stars head coach after the exit of Jacob Ghost Mulee
Engin is a former Moldova National team. He holds a UEFA Pro Coaching License.
His first assignment will be to prepare the stars to face Mali in a back to back match for world cup qualifiers on 6th and 12th September respectively
Nick Mwendwa announced that Firat will be in charge of the national team for the next four 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification matches.
“We were looking for someone who fits the project that we have. We are in between a campaign already and we wanted someone who can look at the task and be prepared for it. We were not looking for someone who would be here for three-four years but we wanted someone who can help us with these qualifiers,” said FKF boss Nick Mwendwa.
The new coach says; “This is an interesting project and I am glad to be here. I am glad to see what the next two months hold and hopefully we succeed. Kenya is a good football nation and I am looking forward to work here.”
In his previous assignment as the head coach of the Moldova national team, he never won even a single match.
