MASERU — Thirty-eight local coaches will attend a Confederation of African Football (Caf) C Licence course this week, Lefa technical director Seephephe Matete has said.
Matete said the 38 coaches from the premier league, A Division and district teams will attend the course to be conducted by Caf instructor Sonnyboy Sethite from Botswana.
“Sonnyboy, a technical director in Botswana and Caf instructor, will arrive in the country on Tuesday to conduct theory examinations on coaching, laws of the game and practicals,” he said.
The local coaches will only be given licences after passing all the tests conducted during the two-week course.
“Just attending the course does not give the 38 coaches a privilege to automatically qualify for the Caf C Licence,” Matete said.
“They need to work extra hard just like students and they will be marked based on their theory and practical examinations. Only those who pass will be given certificates.”
According to the course module, Sethite must spend 30 minutes on each coach before he can determine their individual marks.
Matete was confident that more than 50 percent of the coaches were going to pass the examinations.
“I am confident that 50 percent of the coaches attending the course are going to pass and will graduate from their current level to the Caf C Licence level,” he said.
From next season, only coaches with Caf C Licences will be allowed to be in charge of premier league teams.
This is according to a new Caf rule which seek to formalise the standards of football across Africa.
