Friday, August 31, 2007
Four coaches from the Gambia Football Coaches Association will this morning leave Banjul for Sweden for a month-long exchange visit to their own in the Scandinavian country, Observer Sports can reveal.
The quartet are the President of the Gambia Football Coaches Association and Head Coach of Africell-Sait Matty, Pa Suwareh Faye, Secretary-General, Ebou Faye, Treasure and Head Coach of Red Scorpions, Desamba Mbenga and Mariama Sowe, Head Coach of Interior female team.
In an interview with Observer Sports, Coach Pa Suwareh Faye, said their relations with the Swedish counterparts started with the assistance of the erstwhile GFA Second Vice-President, Mr Ebou Ndure and one Pa Musa Fofana, a former Gambian international footballer.
He said the twinning programme will undisputedly help Gambian football coaches to get exposure.
Faye added that during the visit, they and their counterparts will engage in various exercises, aimed at enhancing the technical and tactical skills of the participants with the view of improving the performance, as well as fostering closer relationships between the coaches of the two countries.
“The visit will create a clear understanding on how football is structured in both countries and it will provide platform for all of us to strive for a better improvement so as to meet the need of the societies in which we live.”
