AFRICAN Stars yesterday appointed a new head coach, Mohammed Gargo, to replace former African Stars coach, Bobby Samaria, on a three-year contract.
Stars’ Chairperson, Patrick Kauta, made the announcement and noted that the team is moving forward with its project and cannot do so without a coach, thus the need to hire a new head coach.
Samaria was appointed as Stars’ head coach, but was later hired by the NFA as the Interim coach of the Brave Warriors CHAN team.
Gargo, who is from Ghana, has over ten years of coaching experience having previously coached the likes of Udenise Calcio and Genoa in Italy.
Gargo will look to spearhead Stars to success as the team is set to take on KKCA Football Club in the first leg of the 2019/202 Confederation of African Football Champions League that will take place over the weekend of 9 to 11 August 2019 in Windhoek.
He is not new to the Namibian premier league as he previously coached the Tura Magic Football Club last season, before being fired by the management of the club.
