Reinhardt Fabisch- Fare thee well

Learning of the death of this coach was a shocker for me. I honour him for helping bring the local football game to a level where most coaches both local and international have not been able to do in most encounters.
He helped mould a team which was placed 2nd in the All-Africa Games in 1987 going on to qualify for the Africa Cup of Nations 2 consecutive times and also helped the team hold fancied Nigeria in a local encounter back in 1996. His was a hot & cold relationship with both Kenyan fans and officials but he managed to make us go to the stadiums.
I guess it is his love for the African game that saw him coach more African teams until his demise.
SportsKenay honours his life and times in Kenya and Africa too !
