Angola appoint new coach


Angola, Zimbabwe’s opponents in the 2013 Afcon final qualifying round, have appointed Uruguayan Gustavo Ferrin on a two-year contract, state news agency Angop reported on Monday.

He replaces Lito Vidigal, whose tenure as Angola coach ended in April after the nation’s poor performance in the 2012 African Nations Cup.

Ferrin, 53, has spent most of his coaching career in charge of national youth sides in Uruguay and Peru, Angop added.

Ferrin’s first match in charge will be a friendly against Mozambique on August 15 — a day set aside by Fifa for international friendly matches.

The Warriors are yet to confirm a friendly match, but have made inquiries with Kenya, who play Botswana tomorrow, Cameroon, Ghana and Nigeria.

Angola and Zimbabwe clash in the first leg in Harare on September 9 with the second set for Luanda on October 12-14.
