“By today [Thursday], the technical and development committee will sit with government representatives to start the shortlisting, to be followed by interviews and finally the appointment. Hopefully these processes would be done by the end of April”, Mr Jassey told The Standard.

He further disclosed that though the coach will work with the GFF, technically he will be employed by government and that is why the GFF is working closely with government in all stages of recruitment process.

The GFF confirmed that nearly a hundred football technicians including a Gambian applied for the job.
