Gambia/Egypt: Alagie Sarr in Egypt to Pursue Coaching Course

Alagie Sarr, coach of Real De Banjul has jetted to Cairo, Egypt's administrative capital to pursue his coaching course.

The former Gambia Ports Authority gaffer is sitting for his C level coaching course in the North African country ahead of their Caf champions League qualifier tie.

Confirming the news to Foroyaa Sports, club president Willy Abraham said, "he is in Cairo for his coaching course but the training is going on fine and everything is going well."

Sarr is however expected to return to Banjul on Saturday. Alagie, an ex-Gambian international led Real De Banjul to their first title league after four years of trophy drought.

To tee off a rather prosperous-looking 2013, he snatched victory from the jaws of defeat and won the capital outfit the Super Cup title, scooping it from Gamtel's clutches.

In the Champions League, Sarr will look to revel at continent level targeting the second round of the group stages of Caf biggest club competition - a level Gambia club's stutters to reach.

They face FUS De Rabat 2010 Caf Confederation Cup winners - a Moroccan outfit making its first debut in the Caf Champions league this year.

Real de Banjul tomorrow takes on the Gambia national team for a friendly at the Goal Project in Yundum.
