Kenya Technical Bench Urges Clubs To Respect ProtocolThe Kenyan national soccer team technical bench has requested all clubs to ensure they respect protocol especially in sending out communication in regards to players’ attendance or missing national team training.

According to the officials, this will help in avoiding conflict between the national team and the club now and in the future.

This comes in the wake of concerns in the national team camp over the absence of Gor Mahia players who did not report to camp on Monday morning as expected.

The players are currently training with their club that is scheduled to depart Nairobi on Wednesday for Cairo Egypt where they will play their hosts ENNPI in the first leg of the CAF Confederations Cup on Friday.

The national team technical bench says they expected Gor Mahia to send out official communication or players to inform the bench in person that they will not be available because of club commitment.

''We need to create a good relationship between the clubs and the national team and this must start with communication.

''We understand Gor Mahia and Tusker are engaged this week in CAF competitions but we also expected them out of courtesy to communicate to us and inform us that their players will be missing training because we cannot just assume.

''It is important to respect protocol and also so that we do not blame players for failing to attend training,''officials of the national team technical bench were quoted as saying by

According to the officials, they do not hold any intentions of jeopardizing club performance adding that the success of domestic clubs in regional/ continental competition will eventually be beneficial to the national team and the growth of soccer in the country.

Harambee Stars resumed training at the City stadium on Monday morning as Moi International Sports Center Kasarani is currently unavailable.

The team is preparing for the forthcoming FIFA World Cup qualifier match against African champions Nigeria.

The match will be played on the weekend of 23rd March in Nigeria.
