Kenya Football Coaches Association has called on tacticians be at the centre of decision making in local football affairs.

While welcoming the Sports Disputes Tribunal ruling on the now delayed Football Kenya Federation elections, the former Harambee Stars defender Ricky Solomon (pictured) said it was time for coaches to stand up and be counted.

“The SDT has given Kenyans a fresh chance of electing leaders of their choice and time is right to elect people to ignite passion and create wealth for everybody,” the Kecoca chairman said.

“In a football match, you cannot be a player and at the same time appoint the referee and match commissioner. How will your opponent win since this won’t be a level playing ground? This is what FKF team had done by appointing an electoral board that they controlled,” said the former Bandari defender.

“I expect coaches to step forward and seek elective posts so that they have a say in decision making,”

Solomon said adding that he will vie for the position of Coast NEC Representative post, once the formalities have been put in place.
