Harambee Stars: Paul Put unveiled as new coach

Stanley Okumbi, the then Harambee Stars head coach has been replaced by Belgium International Paul Put.

The Football Kenya Federation (FKF) availed a 61 year old Put today during their Annual General Meeting in Mombasa County on a two year contract.

Put has initially coached Gambia, Jordan and Burkina Faso as his first assignment will be on December 3 in the upcoming CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup where Harambee Stars will face the Amavubi Stars of Rwanda in the opener.

Put’s biggest achievement in the continent was leading Burkina Faso to the 2013 African Nations Cup final where they lost to Nigeria.

Okumbi was last in charge of the national team on October 8 when Harambee Stars were stunned 2-1 by lowly ranked Thailand in the international friendly to condemn the former Mathare United head coach to his third loss over the last four matches.

They lost 2-1 to Sierra Leone in the 2019 African Cup of Nations qualifier, drew 1-1 with Mozambique in a friendly, then lost to Iraq 1-0 in international friendly.
