In an aim to help develop the game in the country, the Botswana Football Association has turned to a German technician to shape the path of local football.
The BFA has appointed Christopher Rocholl who is in the country for a month and is expected to do a visibility study on the whole country.
At the end of the study, the German will come up with a report which would include recommendations.
Botswana FA CEO Mfolo Mfolo has confirmed the development.
Mfolo explained that they are optimistic the expert will do a great job and that his report would assist the association on which path the football fraternity could take in order to grow.
He said the study would focus on four aspects such as grass roots level, youth development, coach education as well as monitoring and evaluation.
“The expert is expected to interact with coaches, administrations, Botswana Integration Sports Association (BISA), BOPPSA officials and BFA partners to appreciate their challenges and how they do things,” said Mfolo.
“He would also have an opportunity to tour infrastructure and also watch some games to appreciate the play and the coaching skills.”
The BFA boss added that at the end of the study, the idea was to see another expert from Germany coming to address the recommendations for a period of three years.
