Tom Saintfet Appointed Gambia Head Coach

Belgian tactician Tom Saintfet has been appointed the head coach of the Gambia senior national team on a short-term contract.

The former Namibia, Malawi, Togo and Zimbabwe manager has signed a nine-months contract with the Gambia Football Federation.

The announcement was made by the federation which revealed that the 45-year-old was appointed following consultation with the country’s Youth and Sports Minister, Henry Gomez.

The GFF will bankroll the salary of the coach and other associated costs during the aforementioned duration (9 months), while the Gambia Government is trying to secure funding so as to take over its responsibilities and all other necessary costs related to the coach and other national teams.

Tom Saintfet’s last job was in charge of the Malta national team but he only lasted for three games before he was booted out earlier this year for submitting his application for the vacant Cameroon coaching job.
