By Sulayman Bah The GFF is faced with tough questions recently than is usual as2017 qualifiers question marks over who mounts the horse in Gambia’s quest to reach Gabon finals continue to hover. Under Bajo’s wings, the new leadership at Football House targets tonail down spots in the U-17, U-20, U-23/CHAN and the bigger Caf championship, the African Cup of Nations. A line up of three coaches with reported vast experience has already been tied down to deals ensuring the voids of the U-17, U-17 and U-23s managerial roles are filled. Peter Bonu Johnson, initially contender for the National team job, is assigned to the Gambia U-23s and local-based national team outfit with newly U-17 gaffer Matarr Mboge his dug-out understudy. However with Bonu’s work cut out theoretically confining him to the local-based and U-23s, means the Scorpions managerial helm is technically void. The CHAN and the 2017 Afcon qualifiers are to run simultaneously, the need for a permanent coach for either side can’t be more pertinent. Some reports abound suggest Bonu would be shuttling between the teams at intervals and others claim a new man could be hired preferably a foreign coach. Football House’s coy approach to burning questions over the subject matter has merely made it open to flood of speculation. The West African nation has never qualified for a senior FIFA or CAF tournament even though there’s overwhelming will every championship year.]]>
