Traore lands Guinea job
Former Senegal national team coach Amara Traore is now the new manager of Guinean football club Association Sportive Kaloum, based in the country’s capital Conakry.
The 47-year-old former striker was presented to the local press during the weekend and tasked with taking one of the country’s greatest clubs to greater heights.
“I’m very happy to be in Guinea. I will do my best to bring more success to AS Kaloum, through my methods and hard work,” he said.
According to the sporting director of the club, which currently sits third in the domestic league table, Traore will be heavily involved in the outfit’s new project of recruiting young talents as well as former Guinea internationals or Guinean professionals without clubs in Europe, in view of making AS Kaloum a competitive side both at home and across the continent.
Traore was fired in 2012 after he failed to qualify the Teranga Lions to the knockout stages of the Africa Cup of Nations held in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea.
