FKF Education Officer Salim Ali is back from Ethiopia where he honored an invitation by the Ethiopian Football Federation in conjunction with the Dutch Football Federation (KNVB) to facilitate a week-long coaching course for elite coaches.

The decorated coach reiterated the need for continuous coaching education if Kenya is to remain competitive at the top level.

“Like we have endeavored to do in Kenya, the Ethiopian Federation has put emphasis on coaching education, to ensure that young players are handled by qualified personnel,” said the immediate former Mathare United coach.

“These courses also give our coaches and technical staff the necessary certification they need to harness employment opportunities both at home and abroad,” added the KNVB trained FKF Instructor.

FKF has in the past five years trained over 5,000 coaches at the FKF D License Level, and over 500 coaches at the CAF C License Level. A first-of-its-kind full-length CAF B License course is currently ongoing in Nairobi, for 25 coaches.
