The FIFA Disciplinary Committee has now set May 18, 2020, as the date the case will be resubmitted for evaluation.
According to a statement on FKF official portal, CEO Mr. Barry Opiyo confirmed that the federation didn’t make the necessary payment on time.
“In this regard, we take due note from the content of the abovementioned correspondence that the Football Kenya Federation allegedly did not pay the amounts due to the coach Adel Amrouche within the granted deadline and that the latter therefore requests that further disciplinary sanctions be imposed on the Football Kenya Federation.
“In this sense, we kindly inform the parties that, in accordance with point 4. of the decision passed by the Chairman of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee on 23 March 2020, the case will be resubmitted to a member of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee on 18 May 2020 for evaluation in order to decide on harsher sanctions to be imposed on the Football Kenya Federation, which may lead, amongst others, to possible expulsion from FIFA competitions,” the statement noted.
The federation was to pay KES 109 Million in compensation to Amrouche over wrongful dismissal under the regime of previous President Sam Nyamweya.
On March 23, 2020, FKF received a decision of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee directing the Federation to pay the former coach in 30 days; the window having elapsed on Friday 24 April.
