Troubled Frank Ouna speaks after reports of ditching Rwanda’s Musanza FC
Former Mathare United head Coach Frank Ouna has denied reports of ditching Rwandan-based side Musanza FC.
Social media was awash by reports that the former Gor Mahia tactian had ditched the Rwandan club over a reported disagreement with the club hierarchy.
Ouna is back in the Country and was spotted in various parts of Nairobi over the past few weeks.
In an exclusively interview with a local website, insisted he is in Kenya for a medical check up.
“I came back for a general check-up. I cannot use the medical insurance cover I have in Rwanda,” Ouna said as quoted by Mozzart sports.
He confirmed running the tests on Tuesday and is due to see a specialist for further treatment today (Wednesday).
He went ahead and confirmed that he still has a running contract with the club and intends to return to work depending on what the doctors will say.
“I still have a running contract with the team, and I have been in touch with them since I landed here. My intention is to return, but how soon will depend on the doctor’s advice. If the doctor says I need a rest, then that’s what I will do.”
The Caf ‘A’ license holder who also won the league title while working as an assistant to coach Bobby Williamson at Gor Mahia also boasts of stints with the national football team Harambee Stars under Stanley Okumbi between 2016 and 2018.
The soft-spoken Ouna also led Wazito to promotion to the top-flight two seasons ago.
The Football Kenya Federation’s Technical Department has today, Tuesday, November 22, 2022, taken FKF National Super League (NSL) match officials through rules and regulations regarding the accreditation of coaches and their conduct in the Technical Area during matches.
Facilitated by FKF Head of Technical Michael Amenga, the session was aimed at keeping the referees abreast with the existing regulations as well as the Federation’s accreditation threshold, in a continued effort to fully professionalize the FKF leagues.
For instance, in the FKF Premier League, FKF National Super League, FKF Women Premier League and FKF Division One, both the coach and assistant coach must have attained a CAF C license to access the technical area, and as for the clubs that qualify for the CAF Confederation Cup and the CAF Champions League, the head coach is required to have a CAF A license and the assistant coach, a CAF B license to access the technical area.
To help implement this, match commissioners were trained on what to look out for on the coaches’ accreditation cards.
