Gambia name new coach

05 February 2016, 17:06

Banjul - Sang Ndong was named as new coach of Gambia on Friday, replacing Swiss trainer Raoul Savoy.

Savoy resigned in December last year in the wake of disagreements with the Gambian football federation over the team's poor performances on the pitch.

Federation president Lamin Kaba Bajo said: "Sang Ndong is not a stranger to Gambian coaching because he has handled this position before and the position of technical director before."

Ndong, who had been coaching Gambia Premiership side Hawks, added: "One of the reasons why I took up the job at this crucial time is to help set standards for Gambian coaches.

"To be recognised, to be respected, to be given opportunities and to be supported."

Gambia is out of the 2018 World Cup qualifiers after losing to Namibia, but remain in the running for next year's African Cup of Nations, standing third in Group M after two games with four still to play.
