Former Hasaacas coach Kobina Amissah has reached a deal to coach Liberian top-flight side Red Lions FC, MTNFootball.com can exclusively reveal.
Amissah has been with the club the last one month but will officially take charge of the Paynesville-based side in January.
The 40-year-old qualified to the Ghana Premier League last season but left then struggling side after taking charge of seven league matches.
Amissah will lead the club in the 2014 CAF Confederation Cup against E. Cantanhez of Gabon in the preliminary round first leg tie on 9 February.
Red Lions qualified to play in Africa after losing the 2013 LFA Cup to league champions BYC who will face Ghanaian side Asante Kotoko in the CAF Champions League.
They are currently tenth on the 12-team table of the LFA-Cellcom First Division League.
”I love the challenge and ready to work here. The club is struggling but with the recruitment I have been able to do, the second round will be better,” Amissah told MTNFootball.com.
”Playing in Africa will be another big challenge for me as a coach and I am looking forward to it.”
Ghanaian Rockson Coffie, who owns Red Lions Africa, bought 80 percent shares in the Liberian Football Association First Division Club formerly known as Fatu FC and immediately changed its name.
Coffie’s company also owns a third-tier side, Red Lions FC, in Ghana.
