The federation's chairman Nyamweya promises to enforce the contract between Ingwe and the Dutchman in order to have the dues cleared

Football Kenya Federation (FKF) insists AFC Leopards must pay dues owes to sacked coach Jan Koops and other members of the technical bench.

The federation's chairman Sam Nyamweya at the same time promised to enforce the contract between Leopards and Koops in order to protect the coach.

"If there is a contract between the two parties, then the federation will ensure it is enforced to the letter. Leopards have no choice but to pay what they owe Koops," Nyamweya told Goal.com from Kampala, Uganda.

"As a federation we must protect our coaches and ensure that they are well taken care of."

Koops is claiming Sh2.4m from Leopards for unlawful dismissal. In an exclusive interview with Goal.com on Friday, the Dutchman revealed that he will push for his pay for the remainder of his three year contract.

“I signed a three year contract with the club at the beginning of this season and there are still two years remaining which they have to pay me as agreed in our contract,” Koops was quoted saying.

Koops confirmed that the Kenya FA have a copy of his contract and he will ask for their help incase Leopards are unwilling to meet his demands.

“They are obligated to pay me and this is what I will push for to the end."
