LFA Retains Debbah as Head Coach of the National Team


The Liberia Football Association has terminated the services of five coaches of various national soccer teams and the administrative manager of the senior national team, the Lone Star.

The LFA said in a release that those affected are coaches Oliver Makor (Under-20), Joe Nagbe (Under-17) and George Gebro (Under-14).

Also affected are the deputy head coach (Under-17), Varmah Kpoto and Jonah Sarwieh, deputy head coach (Under-14).

The LFA has also terminated the contractual agreement with the Administrative Manager of the Lone Star, Washington Blay.

In separate letters to the affected coaches, LFA Acting Secretary General Emmanuel Deah said the FA’s decision followed a careful review of the technical activities of the coaches.

The release quoted Deah as informing the coaches that the decision is also based on administrative and financial reasons and they will therefore not continue their respective contract beyond the one (1) year probation period.

The LFA Acting Secretary General was mandated by the Executive Committee to inform the coaches and the Administrative Manager of its decision to relieve them of their respective positions.

The LFA is, however, thanking the coaches who are all former national team players for the time and services rendered football while assuring them that once their services are needed in the future they would be promptly contacted.

Meanwhile, the LFA has retained the services of National Team Head Coach James Salinsa Debbah and his Deputy Kelvin Sebwe. Thomas Kojo and Janjay Jacobs will stay on as Head and Deputy Head coaches of the National Under-23 team.

Christopher Wreh will stay on as Head Coach of the National Under-20 team.
