Stars allowances boosted

STARS NAMIBIANAIROBI, Kenya, May 27- Harambee Stars players’ allowances have been increased from Sh3000 to Sh10,000 as motivation ahead of their remaining 2014 World Cup qualifiers.

“We want to encourage the boys and we have decided to increase their daily allowances. We want to motivate the players and achieve the goals we intend to reach,” Football Kenya Federation boss, Sam Nyamweya, told on Monday.

All domestic league matches set for this weekend have been put off to afford head coach, Adel Amrouche enough time to prepare for the June 5 clash against the African champions.

This comes as the Belgian confirmed that Inter Milan midfielder MacDonald Mariga will miss the qualifier against African champions Nigeria.

Mariga who hasn’t featured for the side for over a year has not recovered from his long standing knee injury.

Kenya will also be without their suspended captain, Dennis Oliech and keeper, Arnold Origi for the Eagles’ clash.

Stars are currently bottom of Group F of their Brazil Mundial qualifiers with two points, while their next opponents Nigeria top the group with five, level on points with Malawi who are followed by Namibia with three on third place.
