    Coffees to announce Gomes as head coach

    Date:

    Ethiopia Coffee FC are set to announce Didier Gomes Da Rosa, a French football manager and a former footballer, as their new head coach.

    Gomes’ appointment comes after Serbian coach Kostadin Papic left the side after serving one month breaking the two years contract.

    The Frenchman last managed JSM Skikda in the Algerian Ligue Professionnelle 2. He is famous for making an impressive impact in all the clubs he has managed in his early years in the African continent winning the league titles with Rayon Sports FC (2013), Coton Sport FC de Garoua (2014 and 2015) and also the Cameroonian Cup at the Garoua-based club.

    Didier Gomes Da Rosa began his managerial career in 2008 in his home country France and managed three different clubs; AS Roquebrune Cap Martin, ES Fos sur Mer and AS Cannes in the League of the Mediterranean till 2011.

    He first moved out of France in 2012 to Africa and more accurately to Rwanda where he was appointed as the manager of Rwandan giants, Rayon Sports FC on a three-year contract. The club, nicknamed “Gikundiro” (the well-beloved), because of its popularity was in the relegation zone of the Rwanda National Football League after a disastrous start in the championship falling ten points short of league leaders and the club’s arch rivals, Armée Patriotique Rwandaise FC Under the Frenchman’s leadership, the Nyanza-based side made a spectacular comeback in the season which will be remembered by Rwandan football fans for the years to come. Seven months later, the Gikundiro thrashed rivals APR 4-0 in a historic win and were crowned the champions of the 2012–13 Rwanda National Football League. He also helped his side win the Genocide Memorial Tournament in 2013 where his side faced La Jeunesse Football Club in the finals. His side also participated 2013 Kagame Interclub Cup but unfortunately lost 1-0 to Burundi’s Vital’O FC in the semi-finals. The club after facing serious financial deficits parted ways with the French manager on a mutual consent.

    In addition, he has also managed Cameroonian side Coton Sport and Algerian side CS Constantine.
