According to other sources, Put, who is said to have visited the country recently, deposited his application with the GFF, expressing interest in getting the job again.
The Standard also understood that several other foreign coaches have applied for the job which is yet to be given, with just exactly two months to go before the CAN 2017 qualifiers begin.
Speaking to The Standard yesterday, Abdoulie “Star” Jallow, the first vice president of the GFF, confirmed that Paul Put is among the applicants.
The GFF Number Two added that the Technical and Development Committee, which is headed by himself, is working tirelessly to scrutinise the CVs of the all applicants.
All CVs have been distributed among members of the committee for critical assessment and advice, with a view to shortlisting the most suitable candidates, he said.
He added: “This is a very important decision and even though we understand the need for a coach is acute, we must be do things in the proper way,” emphasising that there is no automatic place for any coach or choice for any one yet until all people concerned have been consulted and all processes thoroughly completed.
