A total of 19 coaches have been shortlisted for the interviews to hire a Kenya U17 national team coach, which will be getting underway on Friday 13 May at the Farasi Lane Primary School in Lower Kabete, Nairobi.
The Football Kenya Federation (FKF) has confirmed it had to sieve through 60 CVs, having announced the vacancy in April.
Among the coaches shortlisted include former Mathare United and City Stars head coach Gabriel Kingi Njoroge, former Sony Sugar head coach Leonard Odipo and Mickey Weche, the former AFC Leopards assistant coach.
The best three from the interviews that will consist of practical and theory work will be recommended to the FKF National Executive Committee for consideration.
“The recruitment process for the U17 National team coach began in earnest on April 11, 2016 with invites being circulated to FKF branches around the country requesting interested candidates to apply.
“Out of this, over 60 CVs were received, both local and foreign, with a short list of 19 candidates making the cut for today’s interviews.
“The top three candidates that score highest will be recommended to the National Executive Committee (NEC) for consideration in being appointed to the technical bench of the U17 national team,” said FKF CEO Robert Muthomi.
