Harambee Stars coach Paul Put has once again reiterated his call for Kenyan football fans to rally behind the national team.

Put, who guided Stars to a podium finish at Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup with a win against Zanzibar in the final, said that all stakeholders must pull towards the same direction if local football is to expand and improve.

“We need everyone on board,” said Put during the team's luncheon in Nairobi.

“We want to call upon our fans and everyone to support us. We need fans to fully rally behind the national team. All of us must pull in the same direction."

The Belgian will now shift his attention to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers. Stars will host Ghana in March, 2018 in the first round of the qualifiers before turning their attention to Ethiopia.

Put signed a two-year contract with Football Kenya Federation last August.
