A German technical expert, Christoph Rocholl, has begun a two-month work to audit local football, as the Botswana Football Association (BFA) seeks ways to improve the game.
The German began work at the BFA this week, and will assess all facets of the game and recommend the best way forward.
The German FA will meet the costs while the BFA covers local travel and accommodation expenses.
BFA president, Maclean Letshwiti opted for an audit of the local game, and decided to engage a German, known for their precision and good football development.
“He is doing a situational analysis on the state of football in Botswana.
He is here for two months to do the study. After the study, they will determine what kind of resource we need for the next two to four years. We do not have the expertise and know-how,” Letshwiti said.
He said they engaged a German expert due to their record in the development of football.
“In my opinion, there is no better country in youth development than Germany. They have also assisted other countries
What has the national team achieved in the last 50 years, it has always been mediocre performance. I am worried, but I am doing something about it. Development is long term. For 50 years, we have been doing things the wrong way,” he said.
