Rumours: A close aid from the football house has revealed to Nna Gambia News Online that the Gambia Football Federation will soon reach a consensus over who to replace Raoul Savoy as the head coach of the scorpions.
Weeks ago it was rumoured that the federation is considering a local coach to take charge of the scorpions remaining matches in the ongoing 2017 AFCON qualifiers.
Recently, it was reported that the some scorpions meet with the president of the Gambia Football Federation, Lamin Kaka Bajo and appealed to him to look inwardly when hiring a coach.
Unconfirmed new from the country’s football house has it the technical committee has over the weekend interviewed three local coaches namely Alagie Sarr, Matarr Mboge and Omar Sise for the vacant post.
Nna Gambia News’s eyes, ears and mouth might have missed the other interviewees who might have passed through the doors of the GFF but remains certain that very soon they will announce a coach for the scorpions.
Alagie Sarr, the head coach of Gambia Ports Authority has coached and won the local championships with several league clubs and is believed to be a very tactically gifted coach who hardly loses to a coach on a doubled legged tie. Matarr and Omar are both contracted coaches of the GFF to coach the youth teams, the U-17 and U-20 respectively. They have both assisted the former scorpions coach, Raoul Savoy during his brief spell with the scorpions.
The trio were squeezed over how they intend to go about leading the scorpions and their knowledge of players plus many other things concerning managing the national team.
The federation is expected to brief the press sometime this week on who the next scorpions coach will be unless this leaked news keeps them delaying the revelation.
Remember this is just a rumour.
