The Sierra Leone Football Association has announced that it has temporarily extended the contract of Coach John Keister, which will expire at month's end, for at least one more match. This was stated in a release issued out today 15th August 2023.
The extension comes after mounting calls for Keister's sacking, following the team's less than satisfactory performances in recent matches. News of his replacement had been accompanied with the naming of experienced player, team owner and Coach Mohamed Kallon, as the new coach in waiting.
These rumors have been pointed out as false and further clarified that Keister and his entire backroom staff have been enlisted for the upcoming match of the team, against Guinea Bissau.
SLFA committed to a resolution of the issue of a Head coach on the return of the team, after the match scheduled to be played in early September in Bissau.
