The Liberia Football Association has suspended contracts of all national team coaches.
A release from the LFA cited the fact that Liberia is not engaged in any international competition until 2018 and as well difficulties in securing funding for the National Teams Programs.
In separate letters, four Coaches have been informed of the immediate suspension of their contracts with the assurance that the FA’s current liability to them that has to do with unpaid salaries will be duly settled.
The Musa Bility-led football house assured the coaches that the suspension of their respective contracts is in no way related to their performances as Head Coaches and Deputy Coach of the various national teams.
Coaches affected are James Salinsa Debbah (Head Coach Liberia National Team), Thomas Kojo (Head Coach- Liberia U-23 National Team), Christopher Wreh (Head Coach- Liberia U-20 National Team) and Janjay Jacobs (Deputy Head Coach- Liberia U-23 National Team).
The LFA release said the body was deeply saddened that such circumstances have made the suspension of contractual services necessary.
“On behalf of the President, Vice President, Executive Committee and Secretariat of the Liberia Football Association (LFA), I want to thank you for the services you have rendered and express our hope for working together in 2018”, Deah stated in the letter to the four coaches.
The LFA decision was taken in consultation with the Ministry of Youth and Sports and the coaches are assured that once active national teams engagements resumed they would be contacted.
