Thumbs up for Latapy


Share post:

The appointment of Russell Latapy as head coach of the Barbados senior national football team has been given the thumbs up by two former national captains.

 Last week during a press conference, Barbados Football Association (BFA) president Randy Harris announced that Latapy had signed a two-year-deal and would take up the position from April 1, 2019.

The 50-year-old former attacking midfielder will take over from technical director Ahmed Mohamed, who was in charge of the senior national football team for the final time last Sunday when Barbados lost 1-0 to Nicaragua.

 It’s the first time the BFA has appointed a head coach within recent years, a move which has been supported by ex-players and coaches.

Former national captain Norman Forde told the Nation he totally agreed with Latapy’s appointment but held the view that a local coach should lend a helping hand.
