SAVE THIS BEAUTIFUL GAME

 

 

We have a long way to go to ever qualify for any international championship in football.Reason being that we still dont have what it takes to really compete with other established countries as far as football matters are concerned.
Dont get me wrong when i say this, but eventually truth must be told so as something is done inorder to save this beautiful game. Most people say bad leadership and management is what is ailing our football but for me its not only that but the main thing is that, we have failed to come up with good football structures that will help us grow and nurture talents that will help us in future.
I understand there are several football academies here in Kenya but the problem is that majority of this academies are only after the profit and therefore end up wasting the talents available.
In countries such as Cameroon we have players who play in big clubs inthe premier league together with Ghana,Ivory Coast and Nigeria.Its not that Kenya doesnt have talented players but its because we have not simlpy met the standards of the Fifa to allow us, take our players there and its very sad because we would have several of them there.
It is also time we check on players selection during international matches because this might also be another problem,the coach should not only focus on picking players from big clubs but also try out players from less perfoming clubs who are excellent because am certainly sure that there are who yearn for that opportunity to take up the duty.
Hearing fans say that it was good that we mantained our pride against Uganda by deying them a chance to qualify for the AFCON was absurd because our only pride would have been to qualify from the very beginning.
It is time for the government to work closely with KFF to set up structures that will go to the deepest of all counties and dig out for potential talents that lie out there.
The football elections is nearing,much has been said and very little has been done its time we elect a leader who really has a vision for this treasured game and revive it.A leader who is ready to sacrifice for our football and not sacrifice it for his personal benefits.
