Future of Harambee Stars coach thrown into doubt

Goal Kenya.
Paul Put's commitment to Harambee Stars is most likely to be discussed by FKF in the coming days
Paul Put’s future as Harambee Stars coach has been thrown into doubt after Guinea emerged as a potential destination for the Belgian.

Put has emerged as among the top candidates for the vacant Guinea's job after the West African nation parted ways with Kanfory Bangoura following a dismal performance at the ongoing Africa Nations Champions in Morocco.

Put 61, signed a two-year deal with Football Kenyan Federation last November, but the Belgian may leave his current position, just three months into the job, if reports by several news outlets in Guinea are to be trusted.

Put came close to landing Guinea’s job in 2016 when he made it to the shortlist but was eventually beaten by Bangoura, who was fired after finishing third with no single win in 2018 Chan’s Group A.

Put still has a contract with FKF and his future is most likely to be discussed by top local football body in the coming days with Guinea expected to make the final announcement in February.

Put lifted his maiden title with Kenya after guiding the team to Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup last December.

Put, one of the most sort after coaches in Africa, is expected to guide Kenya in Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers at home against Ghana on March 23.
