Adel Amrouche's contract with Botswana expires in June
Botswana could be in the market for a new coach for their national team in the not too distant future.
Current coach Adel Amrouche will see his contract with the Zerbas expiring in June and reports suggest he is currently in South Africa, with an interest of finding a club to coach in the country’s Premier Soccer League.
According to reports, the Algerian coach is not likely to renew his contract when it expires at the end of June. He has been linked with the head coaching job at Orlando Pirates.
The current Pirates coach, Josef Zinnbauer, is under tremendous pressure at the moment and talk is that he could leave the club if the club does not progress to the CAF Confederation Cup semi-finals. Pirates played to a 1-1 draw with Moroccan outfit Raja Casablanca in their first leg quarterfinal clash in Soweto, Johannesburg, last weekend. They will have a tough task in trying to register a positive result that will see them progressing to the semi-finals of the competition.
Amrouche, who holds a Uefa Pro License, has tons of experience coaching on the continent. He has coached at both national team and club level. The 53-year-old has previously coached the national teams of Libya, Kenya and Burundi, while he has also sat in the hot seat for Algerian clubs MC Alger and USM Alger.
For Botswana, it will be time to look at who can lead the senior national team going forward.
