The Kenya Football Federation have sacked coach Jacob Mulee.

The decision comes 11 days after the Harambee Stars drew their second straight 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifier, with the 1-1 in Rwanda coming after a goalless draw in Uganda.

“The search for a new national team head coach is already underway and an announcement will be made shortly,” the FKF said in a statement.

“Assistant coach Ken Odhimabo and William Muluya will remain in the team as the federation works to reconstruct the Harambee Stars’ technical bench ahead of the World Cup qualifiers against Mali, scheduled for October, home and away.”

Kenya are currently second in Group E with two points behind leaders Mali, who have four points. Only the group winners progress to the final round of qualification where 10 nations will battle it out for a place at the global showpiece next year.

Mulee is the fourth coach to lose his job since September’s qualifiers with Egypt, Zimbabwe and Ghana all making similar decisions recently.
