A football alliance between former Kenyan international Sammy Shollei and former CECAFA secretary general Nickolas Musonye could be in the offing ahead of the upcoming FKF elections.

Speaking to Citizen Digital, Shollei who was elected FKF vice-chairman under Sam Nyamweya before being shoved aside said he is willing to work with anyone who will bring sanity to Kenyan football, and is ready for accountability.

“I have not decided yet but we had a lengthy chat with Musonye on how we can improve football in this country. Others include Andrew Amukowa from Western Kenya, Hussein Mohammed, Twaha Mubarak from Mombasa, Lordvick  Aduda  – all  based on a common goal on how we can bring back the joy of football to the fans in the nation,”said Shollei.

“If Musonye would want us to work together and bring even more people on board then I’m ready to do that as long the agenda is to improve the game and bring back the fans to the stadium.”

The talk of an alliance comes in the wake of Shollei being pictured enjoying easy moments with the former CECAFA supremo in which he said their discussions bordered on how Kenyan football can be improved.

“We need a leader who will listen to every football stakeholder, not someone who will become a dictator and be afraid of taking up new ideas,” he said. “Football is the most loved sport in the world because it is followed by ordinary people.”

Shollei also weighed in on the tussle between Football Kenya Federation and Kenya Premier League saying it scares away potential sponsors.

“The federation needs to sit down with KPL and find the best way in which they can run the league instead of always fighting in public, making football look like the game of hooligans, such images scare away potential sponsors,” Shollei concluded.
