43 coaches attend Caf C-licence course

Speaking at the closing ceremony, the course instructor Ghanaian Anthony Edussei, disclosed that Caf has agreed with member associations to organise educational programmes in order to upgrade and broaden the knowledge base of their coaches.

But locally too, according to Mr Edissie, coaches need adequate facilities to be able to establish themselves.

Mr Anthony therefore appealed to the government and the GFF to provide adequate funding and all necessary support to the development of football coaches.

He concluded by urging the participants to make use of the knowledge gained during the course.

Abdoulie Kah the deputy permanent secretary at the Ministry of Youth and Sports MoYS deputised for the minister.

In response to the Caf instructor, Mr Kah said: “As a ministry we are equally interested in the development of sports and particularly football. If you look at our budget for sports development, 75 percent of our revenue goes to football which goes to show the level of importance government has placed on football. 

Other speakers included Caf local instructor Lamin Sarr.
