The former Gambia and Jordan national team coach will be banking on his past history to steer Kenya to her first Cecafa title since 2013

Harambee Stars head coach Paul Put is calling on fans to fill Bukhungu stadium to the brim when Kenya kickoff her Cecafa Senior Challenge campaign against Rwanda on Sunday.

Put is expected to make his debut on the bench this afternoon and the Belgian is upbeat that Stars can shine brighter, but not without the support of the 12th man.

“All I need is support from all quarters. I want to lead a team of 12 and not just 11. And that means that the 12th person must come from all corners of the Kenyan football scene,” Put said ahead of the 2.00 pm kick off.

“I have written history with small nations and I believe that I am capable of steering Kenya to achieve big things.

“I want to see the stadium fully packed because that is the only way the players and I will know that we are working together."

Put was appointed Harambee Stars coach last month, taking over from Stanley Okumbi who has been relegated to the position of assistant.
