The Football Kenya Federation (FKF) has named a Belgian of Algerian origin, Adel Amrouche, as new head coach of the country's senior national football team.
The 44-year-old Amrouche, was unveiled Wednesday as the coach of the Harambee Stars.
However, his terms of contract have not been disclosed by the FKF.
Amrouche takes over from Frenchman Henri Michel, who quit after a disagreement with FKF.
'It is time for a new approach for the future so that we can make Kenya one of the big names in the continent and in the world,' said Amrouche, who coached the Burundi national team up to December 2012.
'I also want to make Kenya play attractive and efficient football that produces results,' he said.
The coach's most immediate crucial assignment is leading Kenya against reigning Africa Cup of Nations champion Nigeria next month, in a 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier in Nigeria.
