Gambia: Tapha Manneh Ponders Quitting Gamtel Coaching Job

Mr.Tapha Manneh is weighing his options and revealed he may have to quit his coaching role at Gamtel Football Club.

The former footballer is sandwiched between his office job and role as manager of the telecommunications football team. His dilemma is triggered by changes in work schedule after government announced plans to prolong working hours from 8am to 6pm week ago.

The sweeping changes have left Manneh contemplating abdicating his coaching job with Gamtel FC, he revealed to Foroyaa Sports.

"The changes with work from 8 to 6 will affect my coaching job because the work at office too is there." The two times FA Cup and SuperCup winner said.

GFA league matches kickoff on official time of 4:30pm.

He however adds, he may still stick on with the 'demanding' job but warn only if he is favoured with adjustment on his schedule by authorities concerned.

"I will have to talk to Gamtel "he continued.

The disclosure will be unwelcome news to Gamtel faithful and players on having to part ways with a man who instilled lifeline into its squad.

Tapha picked up the coaching among a lineup of shortlisted candidates in 2010 and led the team to clinch the FA Cup title and Super Cup years on.
