Denmark's Kim Poulsen (61) is the new coach of Tanzania. The Scandinavian is no stranger to the horn of Africa, as he has already been in charge of the Taifa Stars (Tanzanian national football team) from 2012 to 2014. He was also involved in a development program initiated by the federation in 2011-2012 and again from 2016 to 2018. He replaces Burundian Etienne Ndayiragije, who has been in office since August 2019.
Poulsen has also coached several clubs in Denmark, including Horsens, Vejle BK and Silkeborg IF, as well as the Singapore U-23 team. Poulsen has signed a one-year contract. He will start his mission in March with a trip to Tunisia, in the qualifiers for the AFCON 2021, before receiving Libya.
Tanzania is in third place in Group J, with four points, behind already qualified Tunisia (ten points) and Equatorial Guinea, with six points. Tanzania still has chances to qualify for the Cameroon expedition.
