Coach Ebou Jarra hints at quitting as GAF guard

Monday, June 11, 2018

There is likelihood that Coach Ebou Jarra might be leaving The Gambia Armed Forces Football Club when his two-year contract ends in two months time.

Coach Jarra told this reporter shortly after clinching the 2018 FF Cup against Brikama United on Friday that the choice is up to GAF to either extend his contract or not but he is not ruling out a possible quit.

GAF beat Brikama United 4-3 and will be representing the country in the CAF Confederation Cup, while league winners Gamtel will play in the CAF Champions League competition.

Jarra, who annexed the 2017 league with GAF in his first season, said he was so proud for winning the FF Cup. “It is just a beginning of many trophies to come and I hope GAF continue to support the team.”

Coach Jarra said the team came into the game to play well and qualify for the continental competition to give players the opportunity of exposure.

He admitted that the season was a tough one as his side failed to defend its league title.

As to whether he is planning to extend his two-year contract which ends this season, he said the choice was up to GAF, but he is not ruling out a possible quit.

Brikama United head coach Modou Lamin Nyassi praised his players for the spirited fight despite losing. He credited GAF for deservedly winning the final.
