Gambia needs a break from international football
By Gibril Jassey
Gambian football needs to undergo a five-year break in order to develop our players from the grassroots level. The current performance of our players in the senior national team the (scorpions) is very woeful. Our players seriously lack ability compared to other countries national teams.
They easily get tired, when playing. Is it that they lack enough training time to prepare themselves against their opponents? The recent performance of the Scorpions against Algeria both at home and away and as well against Morocco at home is very disappointing. The way our team plays is like there is no team spirit among them. For more visit the sports page.

The move to demote Kabba Ceesay as the technical director and elevate Musa Njie is in line with the normalisation committee’s move of normalising Gambian football. When the normalisation was instituted, one of their responsibilities was to set up a vibrant technical department for the GFA. For more visit the sports page.
