Exclusive: BFA Comment On Amrouche To Chiefs Talk

The Botswana Football Association (BFA) have commented on reports linking Adel Amrouche with Kaizer Chiefs.

Daily Sun reported today (Monday) that Chiefs are expected to announce Amrouche as the club’s new head coach, despite the reports linking the Soweto giants with Gavin Hunt as a potential successor of Ernst Middendorp, who was released from the club last week after losing out on the league title.

In an interview with the Siya crew, BFA Spokesperson Tumo Mpatane has provided the latest with regards to the Algerian coach and his whereabouts. 

“We are aware that the coach is not in Botswana right now. He is in Belgium as far as we are concerned. He is in Belgium to check on his family. Remember, throughout the COVID lockdown he was in the Republic, he was in Botswana. So, he asked for time to go and check on his family. I mean, for about six months he had not seen his family, so we duly agreed that he go and check his family,” said Mpatane.

“As far as we are concerned, he’s still our gaffer. I have no reason to believe that he’s jumped ship, and that’s where we are. He has not said anything to the degree of jumping ship. We are in the process of starting preparations for the AFCON qualifiers and he’s still our gaffer,” he said.
