The Federation of International Football Association is currently offering senior coaching courses to 25 Liberian coaches in Monrovia. According to Coach Francis Tamba, the program has been offered to the country to upgrade skills of coaches in the top division, because Liberia’s football needs lots of tactics and new methods to reach current standard of international football.
Coaches benefitting from the training opportunity at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium were selected from the premiership, 1st and 2nd Divisions. Coach Tamba said FIFA is concerned about the development of football so it has offered Liberian coaches new methods before the start of the local season.
“We also have the CAF License-B coaches program running in Liberia; this program is open to all level of coaches and it is having great impact on our league since the introduction of those courses”, Tamab explained.
