Former Ports Authority FC defender, Ernest Konjoh has provided support for 10 coaches to undertake the Sierra Leone Football Association (SLFA) License B coaching Course.
The former defender who is now the CEO and founder of the Ernest Konjoh Foundation paid the sum of Le 5,000,000 for the ten to be part of the training course which commenced yesterday (Monday) at the SLFA football academy, Kingtom.
He said: "I decided to pay for them simply because I love the game and I want to give back to the country of my birth and the game I played during my days in Freetown. Also some of the coaches are my childhood friends and besides we played together.”
The former defender promised to do more because of his passion for the game despite not playing active football currently.
Konjoh became the second person to make such a gesture after the SLFA president; Isha Johansen last week announced that she will pay 50% percent of the Le 1,000,000 course fee for each participant in the course.
The SLFA boss’s pronouncement was made at the FA Secretariat after she was informed by the Technical Department that most of the coaches who have met the requirements to take the 'B' License course could afford to pay the fee.
