SSFA vows to develop strong women’s football team

The South Sudan Football Association (SSFA) vowed commitment to strengthening the national women’s football team.

This came after Sidi Mohamed, a Moroccan coach, signed a two-year contract with SSFA to take over the women’s national team.

In his first address to the media yesterday in Juba, Mohamed expressed willingness and commitment to deliver the best of his determination to build a much stronger team.

“I am delighted and honoured to be with you and I thank everyone who trusted me. I promise you that I will do my best to achieve the goals,” he said.

The chairperson of the national team committee, Michael Daniel, expressed his concern about building women’s football in South Sudan.

He said the reason behind recruiting a new coach was to empower the rest of the assistants and prepare them for the bigger picture.

“Today is a great day for SSFA because we are going to enter a new (journey) in the women’s national team by signing this contract with coach Sidi.”

“He is from Morocco he has been coaching since 2010, he worked with many clubs in Morocco, and football academics, worked with Mohamed studies academics,” Daniel said.

Daniel said SSFA entered into a contract with Sidi Mohamed due to his rich experience as a coaching professional.

“The Board of Directors decided to agree to appoint Sidi to be the head coach for Bright Starlets for 2 years and the contract can be renewed. Also, he will be a technical coach for all the women’s National Team,” Daniel explained.
