Kaba Diawara Reinstated As Guinea Coach
Kaba Diawara has been reinstated as the Guinea national team coach, just four days after the dissolution of the technical bench by the Normalization Committee running Guinea Football Federation (FGF).
Diawara officially left his post on Friday after the FGF decided not to renew his contract that run out after the end of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.
“Following the disbandment of the entire Syli Nationale technical bench, the normalization committee running Guinean Football Federation has decided to re-appoint coach Kaba Diawara,” reads the statement as translated from French.
“He will be in-charge of the upcoming international friendlies set for the last week of March 2022. A limited technical team will be added to it for this purpose.”
Diawara first took charge of the Syli Nationale in November last year and only lasted for three months as the head coach.
The 45-year-old took over temporarily after French coach Didier Six was sacked when Guinea failed to qualify for the 2022 World Cup.
The former Guinea international made 10 appearances for Arsenal in 1999 after signing from Bordeaux. He went on to play for Marseille and Paris Saint-Germain before making six appearances on loan at West Ham.
