Liberia: “Appoint coach Keita as interim coach” Wleh Bedell berates Liberian Football Association
Monrovia – Liberian football analyst Wleh Bedell has urged the Liberian Football Association to replace coach Peter Butler with an interim coach.
According to the Liberian football sports writer, the Englishman has failed in Liberia since taking over the national team.
Butler was given the mandate to qualify Lone Star for the Nations Cup and the World Cup, but at first glance, the Red White and Blue are nowhere near qualifying for the World Cup after losing two consecutive games against Cape Town. Green who placed Lone Star at the bottom of the table with two games remaining.
In a Facebook post, Bedell said it was time for the FA to consider terminating Butler’s contract to protect the country’s image.
“It is now glaringly obvious that Peter Butler and his colleagues failed to get the Lone Star to the 2022 World Cup qualifying play-offs in Qatar, which would require them to face a 180-minute test with the one of ten group winners for qualifying for the Qatar Football Jamboree.
“With the team left with their last two games against Central African Republic and Nigeria at home, it is unrealistic for the Lone Star loyalists to maintain any qualifying hope against group leaders Nigeria Super Eagles. for the pride and joy of the nation is deeply rooted at the bottom of the group.
“Butler could resign to avoid dismissal as he would seek another employer and as a way forward it is necessary for the relevant authorities to appoint interim national Under-15 coach Ansu Keita to end the two remaining matches of them. World Cup qualifiers. “
He further stated that the UEFA B license coach would be able to unify the squad by mixing the exuberance and experience of youth with the old guards recalled by working with the younger ones at at home and abroad as the Lone Star moves on to something he said if it’s done will serve as an antidote to revive the team for the future.
The call from longtime sports writers comes after many stakeholders called on the LFA to sack Butler for his poor run of results.
