The Botswana Football Association (BFA) has welcomed German technical expert Dr Carolin Bruan, who will be based in Gaborone for the next two years at least.
BFA Chief Executive Officer Mfolo Mfolo told the media that Dr Bruan comes with a big reputation in the field of youth of women’s coaching.
“She has organised courses and held seminars for coaches, she is a doctor in sports science and we are delighted to have a person of her calibre in our midst,” Mfolo said.
Dr Bruan’s brief will include working closely with BFA Technical Director Serame Letsoaka and advising the organisation in the fields of basic and further training of coaches.
Her role will include the creation of a coach education system, developing and implementing a program to improve football structures and also working more closely with women’s football.
Dr Bruan has revealed that she has extensive experience of working on the African continent.
‘’I came here because I saw many people working hard to improve football in Botswana. I have a PhD and the highest football license in Germany,’’ she said. “Botswana is a very special country and I want to develop a structure here where people will have great football and enjoy it.”
For his part, Letsoaka said there won’t be a clash of roles between him and Dr Bruan because she will be focusing on schools and regions where she will be developing coaches.
