Botswana appoint new coach.
The Botswana Football Association (BFA) appointed Peter Butler as the new Zebras coach. The Englishmen occupies a seat that was left vacant after former coach Stanley Tshosane was relived of the post last October
Botswana reached their first ever Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) final in 2012 at the height of their success and are keen to bring back those glory days. Butler’s immediate goal is to prepare Zebras for the preliminaries of the 2015 AFCON qualifiers. , BFA president, Tebogo Sebego told BBC Sport at the announcement of Butler’s appointment that, “Butller is as hungry for success as we are. He wants a challenge and his presentations have shown that he has a fire burning in him. In terms of targets, we want him to deliver a team that will get us beyond the preliminary stages of Council of Southern Africa Football Associations ( Cosafa). As for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations, we are looking for him to deliver a positive display. Because of the short amount of time to prepare we don’t necessarily expect to qualify for that tournament. But we want a positive impact in terms of attaining points and getting a respectable position in the group at the very least.” Said the BFA boss
The BFA also appointed Ben Kgomela as the new technical director for Botswana Football in general.
