Gor Mahia coach predicts a dark future for Kenyan football

Kerr’s Gor Mahia were bundled out of the Caf Champions League by Esperance

Harambee Stars may not qualify for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, unless proper structures are put in place, warns Gor Mahia tactician Dylan Kerr.

Kerr says that the country is still lagging behind the structural development, a scenario that exposes both the national team and the clubs at the international stage.

"I do not see Kenya qualifying to any major competition soon, we are still lagging behind. Facilities are still a problem and the structures are still wanting. These are things that determine the country's success in the footballing scene.

"It has to start from down there, grassroots, without that, the same songs will be sung year in year out."

Harambee Stars are set to play Comoros and Central African Republic in international friendly matches away in Morocco during the Fifa week.

Stars are using the build up as part of their preparation for the September’s AFCON qualifiers against Ghana.

Kenya's last outing was during the Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup held in the country last December, where the team, then led by former coach Paul Put, won the crown.
