After several years of experience in African elections, European coaches are now in demand for another position. “White Wizards” prints the National Technical Directorates of African countries, underlines Daily.
this website football365 who gave the information: Christian Gourcuff would be reached to find Algeria. The Breton technician is being asked for the position of National Technical Director (Dtn) of the Algeria selection, 5 years after leaving his post as head coach of Fennecs. Still, according to foot365, the information comes from the journalist. Bein Sports Arab, Mohammed Nedjari.
An attempt to the credit of Djahid Zefizef, the new big boss of the Algerian Football Federation, who thought of Gourcuff for this important role when he planned to restructure the Greens’ mandate. The Breton coach knows football and local profiles as a former coach.
On Wednesday, however, the Algerian Football Federation was quick to deny it. “No, nothing officially”made it clear to a source on the site competition.dz. Is this a rumor? It’s possible, but remind our colleagues, what you need to know is that the name Gourcuff has been coming back a lot more recently regarding this position, former Dtn, Ameur Chafik has been vacant since his term ended. Also, a source close to Gourcuff suggested that the Frenchman was in contact with Federation members last April. Never mind, and again, according to the same source, Gourcuff, who has been unemployed for 2 years, would open the doors of a new adventure in Algeria in his most preferred Dtn position.
While awaiting or not waiting for official confirmation of this information, an observation is essential. : more and more European technicians or “white wizards” Attack dtns. We can name a few people who have been appointed to this task. The first is in Morocco, where Chris Van Puyvelde has been the new Dtn since last July. The 62-year-old Belgian technician served as Technical Director of Belgium from 2015 to 2018, then China until June 2022. He has previously worked as a manager or assistant coach at various clubs and this has been since 1993.
In Ivory Coast, too, Dtn is a foreigner, exactly a Frenchman. Name: Ludovic Batelli. He replaced the Ivorian Koné Tiègbè in this position at the end of August. “The National Technical Directorate (Dtn) has a new boss. This is French Ludovic Batelli, 59 years old. This former goalkeeper, who is a coach, is a palace man devoted to training. Ludovic Batelli, who became the European Under-19 Champion with the coaching of the France U19 team in 2016, fell under the spell of the Ivory Coast project. The French technician, who came to Abidjan on Wednesday evening, 31st August, started working on improving our football at the Bingerville Technical Center laboratory.Can we read it on the federal site taken by sport News.
The last example is Rwanda. Kagame’s country has chosen Gérard Buscher as the new Dtn of the Rwandan Football Association. Appointed on 14 September, this 61-year-old Frenchman is coming to fill a position that has been vacant since 2020. A big project awaits him. The Federation needed such a technician for the development of Rwandan football. A date welcomed by football fans. For the future of the sport, they hope that youth teams will once again take part in football.
Although Gérard Buscher has never held such a position, he has a rich background in football. He started his coaching career at Ogc Nice in France in 2005. He then spent most of his career in Tunisia. According to local media, he was appointed interim coach of Mauritania in 2021.
No foreign coaches on the bench of African Globalists
But what drives “white wizards” To get more and more interest in Dtn of African countries? A way to chase away the pressure of the bench, which is often fatal for coaches breaking through the door at the slightest failure? But lately it must be admitted that national coaches have been drinking the bottle. Like Algerian Djamel Belmadi and Senegalese Aliou Cissé, the last two to win the Can are under the nose and beard of their European counterparts.
To illustrate this rise in the strength of African expertise, let’s take the example of the next World Cup in Qatar, where the 5 Globalists don’t have a foreign coach on the bench: Morocco, Tunisia, Ghana, Cameroon and Senegal. A ” revolution “ It should force African leaders to continue to rely on local coaches. But this obviously requires ongoing training and constant upgrading of our technicians.
FSF loyal to its citizens
In Senegal, even before that, German Peter Schnittger combined the positions of coach and Dtn from 1996 to 1998, since then the Ministry of Sports and the Senegalese Football Association only took the option of appointment. citizens to this post. Like Mayacine Mar, the current Dtn has been in the post since 2012 and has been rewarded with a good harvest of performance, especially at the junior categories level.
