MASERU — Five of the 38 coaches who enrolled for the Caf C Licence coaching course failed their exams, the Sunday Express can reveal.
Lesotho Football Association (Lefa) technical director, Seephephe Matete, said he was not yet in a position to reveal the names of the coaches who failed the exam.
“The results were officially sent to our office yesterday (Thursday) and five of the 38 coaches who attended flopped,” Matete said.
He however said his office will announce the full results after discussions with the coaches who failed to make it.
“We are yet to discuss which method we are going to use to address this issue and inform the coaches who failed the course,” he added.
“Soon after communicating the results with the said coaches we will announce the names of all the coaches and how they performed.”
Matete said the five coaches who did not pass will be given an opportunity to attend the same course in February next year.
“It is important to understand that there are three modules in this kind of a course and participants must pass all of them to receive a Caf C License.
“These are laws of the game, theory and practical assessment. Coaches are expected to get at least 60 percent in all the modules,” he said.
He added that the high pass rate was a positive development for local coaches.
“This is a really positive direction towards the development of football in the country,” Matate said.
“It is also an indication that our coaches understand the need to have this qualification and are willing to learn more about football.”
The C License certificate is a new requirement by Caf to standardise football in Africa. Beginning next season, all coaches will be expected to have that licence if they are to be allowed to be in charge of premier league
