Amrouche attacked at Nyayo, records statement

Goal can report that suspended Amrouche accompanied by his assistants went to police station at 6pm to record statement after he was attacked

Suspended Kenyan coach Adel Amrouche complained at Nyayo Stadium police station after he was attacked by a fan at the end of Sunday's derby.

Amrouche accompanied by some of his assistants went to the police station at around 6pm and recorded a statement after the fan pushed and attacked him inside stadium during ‘Mashemeji derby' between AFC Leopards' and Gor Mahia that ended 2-2.

Goal can exclusively report that the fan was not immediately arrested and it is not yet clear why he attacked Amrouche or what was the bone of contention.

A Football Kenya Federation (FKF) employee confirmed the incident. "We were called to the police station when Amrouche turned up to record a statement. We condemn the act and ask for tolerance.”

The attack comes days after Amrouche was handed a one year ban by Confederation of African Football (Caf) for allegedly spitting at a match official during a Cup of Nations match in Moroni against Comoros.

Amrouche has vowed to fight the ban terming it unfair.
