FKF had until 5th of this month to pay the tactician but failed to do so but FIFA Disciplinary Committee has announced a 30-day extension.

FKF was ordered by the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) on September 19 last year to pay Adel Amrouche Ksh 109 million as compensation for his wrongful dismissal.

If FKF does not pay the compensation fees, Kenya will be kicked out of the 2022 Qatar World Cup qualifiers and development funds meant for Kenya will be diverted to settle Amrouche’s debt.

Meanwhile, the federation will have to pay a total of Ksh 4 million for the costs incurred by the Fifa Disciplinary Committee in the proceedings involving former coach Adel Amrouche.

In February 2013, Amrouche was named coach of the Kenya national football team taking over the position from James Nandwa who was there on a temporary basis after the departure of Henri Michel.

After 18 months at the helm, he was sacked on 3 August 2014 following Kenya’s 1–0 aggregate loss to Lesotho in the second round of qualification for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations.
