Congolese national Diallo Kouassi has been appointed the Sofapaka FC Team Manager ahead of the 2016 season, which is scheduled to take off on Saturday 13 February.
Diallo will be replacing Amenipa Bigisho, who has been promoted to head the Marketing Department after serving as the Team manager for two years.
Until his elevation, Diallo was a fitness trainer at the club and as he settles in his new role, he says he wants to give his best to ensure Sofapaka returns to the top.
“I am happy to take up this new role at the team; it is a big challenge but I am ready for it and I want to do my role to ensure the team gets back to the top, where it belongs,” he said.
The team has recruited massively heading to the new season with 23 new players listed to turn out for the team in 2016 and Diallo is confident they will do well.
“We have a new team, made up of young players and we have tested them in friendly matches and they have proven it. We still have a few friendly matches to finish up our pre season program and we are confident they will do well in the season,” he added.
