Nairobi City Stars legend and coach John Amboko has returned to class, this time to pursue a Confederation of African Football (CAF) ‘B’ license Diploma.
The course, to be overseen by Football Federation of Kenya (FKF) instructors, as sanctioned by CAF, will be held at the Kenya Institute of Special Education (KISE).
Amboko, at Nairobi City Stars since 2002 – save for 2013 when did a season at AFC Leopards – had this to say on the course;
“I would like to express my sincerest thanks to Nairobi city Stars for sponsoring my CAF B Course,”
“Without your generous contribution, I don’t know how I would have managed it. This means the world to me,”
“This has really eased my financial concerns regarding obtaining the CAF B License. By attending this course I am among the lucky few who were chosen from a list of more than 500 coaches who had wished to attend it,”
“With the knowledge acquired after the 4 months, I believe I will be well equipped to help my team to even perform much better as compared to last season,”
“Once again I really appreciate our chairman Jonathan for touching the hearts of many Nairobians.” added Amboko
Nairobi City Stars team coordinator Samson Otieno added his voice to the latest development;
“Adding capacity to our staff is part of our objective and we are happy to step up Amboko’s coaching credentials by facilitating his entry for a CAF ‘B’ course,”
“In 2019 Amboko, as well as Tiellen (Oguta), was sponsored by the club to pursue CAF ‘C’ Diploma which they completed successfully,” added Otieno
The course will span four months; from 6 September to 15 December 2021 and will be conducted in ten (10) modules.
