Former Harambee Stars coach Paul Put appointed new Guinea coach

Former Harambee stars head coach, Paul Put, has been named as the new coach of Guinea.

The Guinea Football Association made the announcement in a news conference in Conakry on Friday evening.

The 61-year-old Belgian replaces Kanfory Sylla who was sacked following the failure of Guinea’s home based team at the African Nations Championship in Morocco in January.

Put was among more than 80 coaches who applied for the Guinea position. His main task is to qualify the Syli National for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon, and his first game in charge will be against Mauritania in a friendly international in Nouakchott on 24th of March.

Guinea are currently top of Group ‘H’ in qualifying for the 2019 Nations Cup, ahead of Ivory Coast, Rwanda and Central African Republic.

Put, who only resigned as coach of Kenya’s Harambee Stars less than two weeks ago, led Burkina Faso to the runner-up position at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa, losing to Nigeria in the final.
