Serame Letsoaka to leave BFA post

Botswana Football Association Technical Director Serame Letsoaka will leave his post at the end of the year but said he will not be lost to the organisation as he will finish his four-year plan for them while also doing consultancy work for FIFA.

The South African’s three-year deal has been cut short at 19 months by his busy schedule for both the Confederation of African Football (CAF) and FIFA.

Letsoaka joined the BFA in June 2018, and says it would not be fair to be getting a salary while he is hardly in Botswana doing the job he is contracted to do.

“I want to thank the Botswana Football Association for giving me the opportunity and also believing in me to be their technical director,” Letsoaka said, adding the BFA will always be special to him and his family.

He was appointed South African Football Association (SAFA) Instructor in 2003 after completing his DFB A License course in Germany. He was involved in various workshops and seminars to improve the coaching manuals of the association.

He was appointed as the SAFA Technical Director in 2009 and was able to set up structures to introduce and train grassroots coaches in all the nine of the country’s Provinces.

Letsoaka is an accredited FIFA and CAF Instructor.
