South Sudan Appoints Moroccan Coach to Lead National Women’s Football Team
The South Sudan Football Association has chosen Karouane Sidi Mohammed, a Moroccan coach, as the new head coach for the country’s national women’s football team. Mohammed will replace the former coach, Shilene Booysen, whose contract was not renewed earlier this year.
The appointment of Karouane Sidi Mohammed signifies a new era for South Sudan’s women’s national football team. With his Moroccan background, Mohammed brings a fresh perspective, vast experience, and tactical expertise to the team, highlighting the association’s commitment to empowering their women’s football program.
Details regarding the length of the contract offered to Karouane Sidi Mohammed have not been disclosed, leaving the public curious about the duration of his commitment to the team.
The contract’s length will play a crucial role in determining the stability and long-term planning of women’s football in South Sudan.
While Karouane Sidi Mohammed has been appointed as the head coach, he will not be on the touchline during the upcoming African Women’s Cup of Nations qualifiers against Egypt.
Despite this, Mohammed’s decision to travel with the team indicates his earnest desire to understand the dynamics of the players and build rapport before fully taking charge.
South Sudan faces additional obstacles as their only stadium in Juba remains incomplete. With both qualifiers against Egypt taking place in Cairo, logistical hurdles and the absence of home advantage pose challenges for the national women’s team. The completion of the stadium is an urgent matter that requires attention and support from the football association.
The appointment of Karouane Sidi Mohammed as the new head coach of the South Sudan national women’s football team signals an exciting transition for the program.
As a Moroccan coach, Mohammed brings a fresh perspective and expertise that could elevate the team’s performance. Despite challenges such as the undisclosed contract details and incomplete stadium, South Sudan is keen to make a strong impression in the African Women’s Cup of Nations qualifiers under Mohammed’s guidance.
