Kenya coach Paul Put has resigned from his position with immediate effect just after three months in the hot seat.
The Harambee Stars coach has resigned from his position exactly three months after being unveiled - this was confirmed on Monday afternoon.
A statement from the Football Kenya Federation explained that the tactician opted out due to personal reasons.
The FKF has already begun the process of finding a suitable replacement to fill Put’s position, with Stanley Okumbi taking charge of the national team in the interim period.
“Football Kenya Federation wishes to inform the general public that Mr. Paul Put has officially resigned as the Kenya National Football Team, Harambee Stars Head Coach, citing personal reasons,” the statement read.
“The tactician’s resignation, though down to personal reasons is a setback to the country’s ongoing 2019 AFCON qualifiers as he was an integral member of the Technical Bench.
“In light of the foregoing, FKF has already begun the process of finding a suitable replacement to fill Mr. Put’s position, with Stanley Okumbi taking charge of the national team in the interim period.
“Lastly, the federation thanks Mr. Put for his professional service and utmost commitment during his tenure with the Harambee Stars, this even as we wish him well in his future endeavours.”
