lets face it politicians have dipped their dirty fingers everywhere they can find, they want influence and political clout and they will use any means necessary to get them….now football teams provide both the stage and audience for this and they surely use this to the fullest
Many people think that politicians are interested in the teams welfare but why do they wear shades when going to see matches? So that when they doze off no one will notice them doing so
With all the FIFA and product endorsements money coming infootball do you think this politicians will let go off the opportunity to get free campaign funding?
Lets face it why do we have two football governing bodies?..Whydo we have many leaders in football?...why are football elections violent?...GREEDINESS…everyone wants to get all the perks that football brings, but at what cost?….thegood of the game
Most managers/ chairmen are usually not trained..they have never played football before and may even not know all the rules…many are just individuals out to make a killing if not a living out of football…shouldn’t the best persons for the job be trained or at least experienced players who have the good of the game at heart
Lack of planning
For one to be successful at anything they have to plan. when you don’t plan you are simply planning to fail…Kenyan teams do not scout for young talent, they don’t have football academies and do not even have a youthful squad…most like all you there is what is in the pitch on game day….success fulteams in the world over make strategic planning a chief function and this isthe main reason they prosper
Lack of government support
What can I say the government is doing very little if anything to improve football…there are no stadiums, there are no supporting structures, there is no financial support, there is no sufficient legal framework, among many others….
Corruption is rife in football unions and association….thereis no competitive selection of officials, no stringent procurement procedures,nepotism, among others…simply put football unions are run more like horsestables then professional unions
lets face it most teams in Kenya have tribal affiliations…theywere born out of tribal associations…with time such clubs should have grown outof that tribal cocoon to embrace national wide face….it is because of this that teams such as AFC leopards and Gor mahia will not have officials from othertribes other than luhya and luo even if potential candidates from other tribesare more capable to do the job.
besides the fact that proud Kenyan I am a keen follower of good football so you can see Kenyan football is really not my thing…are there any more reason why you think we are going wrong?
