Official- Landi Fired!!!!!!!
The Liberia Football Association has announced that Lone
Star Italian Coach Roberto Landi has being sacked. The
announcement was made on Friday by the LFA president, Musa
Bility who said further enquiries should be channeled
through the Communications Director, Henry Flomo.
With the news that Landi has being sacked, ex- international
Thomas Kojo is serving as care taker coach as the Lone Star
prepares for its Nations Cup qualifier on February 29
against the Brave Warriors of Namibia.
Meanwhile, survey conducted in Monrovia via the radio says
Swedish Coaches Bjorn Peters and Sven Sjunnesson are best
suited for the top job where they could work with ex-
international Thomas Kojo and probably Kelvin Sebwe.
The pair who visited Liberia last year based on the
invitation of the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Sports to
Develop Under Priveleged (SDU) Emmanuel Geeza Williams, put
forth constructive programs intended to move he country's
Among other things they stressed on grass youth football
where players from the U-13 to U-23 will be developed and
promoted and that the Gothia Cup program that brought to
limelight the likes of Dulee Johnson, Dioh Williams, George
Boe, Zah Krangar will be brought to the fore once more as
far as taking Liberian players or teams to such highly
organized youth competition.
They also promised to live in Liberia where they would
regularly tour the country to work with and train local
coaches in scouting younger talents as well as linking
Liberian players to some of the biggest leagues of Europe
where the country's players profile will be raised.
Besides, they say when given the job they hope to make the
Lone Star winsome, attractive and plan to bring sponsorship
package to the national team and the national league.
With the Lone Star pending game with Namibia looming and the
2014 world cup qualifier also in the fore, the LFA has being
urged to appoint the Swedish coaches of Bjorn and Sven.
