WINDHOEK – Retired women’s football senior national team skipper Mamie Kasaona has been appointed interim head coach of the Brave Gladiators, who are set to partake in the Cosafa Women’s Championships in South Africa next month.
Head of the Namibia Football Association (NFA) Women’s Football Desk Jacqui Shipanga revealed to New Era that Cosafa wrote to them in a letter dated 13 June, stating that all participating national teams should be headed by female coaches and a minimum of three women should be in the technical department.
