LISCR FC Part Ways With Coach Tapha Manneh After Five Years

Liberia Football Association first division club LISCR FC have announced that they have parted ways with head coach Tapha Manneh.

The club confirmed the Gambian Coach departure via their official social media handles on Monday, July 12.

“After five years, our journey with Tapha Manneh has come to an end. Five incredible years! Five trophies! The best since you arrived! Thank you Tapha! We wish you all the very best.”

The announcement from the club comes a few days following the appointment of coach Manneh as head coach of the Liberia men’s U-20 national team.

LISCR ended the 2020/21 league season as runners-up after collecting 45 points from 22 games (W 13, L 3, D 6).

The 56-year-old Gambian coach was hired in 2016, replacing Coach Abraham Sessay, who was appointed as stand-in coach after Coach Robert Lartey was asked to set aside following a “poor performance” during the 2015/16 league season.

Since taking charge of LISCR FC in 2016 as head coach, the 56-year-old Gambian gaffer won five major titles, including a league title, two FA Cups, and two Super Cups.

During his debut season in the Liberian League, Manneh made all the right headlines in the league when he reached a phenomenal milestone by setting a new unbeaten record of 22 league games, breaking the 19-game unbeaten record of the late Gabriel Johns when he served as head coach of LPRC Oilers.

Manneh’s unbeaten league run continued the next season and was extended to 26 unbeaten league games that came to an end in September of 2018 after LISCR FC suffered a 2-0 defeat against LPRC Oilers at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium.

During his stay at the club, Coach Manneh was noted for entrusting young players to explore their talents.

In his new role as head coach of Liberia Men’s U-20, Manneh has been mandated to qualify the junior Lone Star to the 2023 U-20 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) finals and the U-20 World Cup finals.
