Paul Put: A great personality- Jammeh Bojang

Jammeh E.K Bojang, the General Secretary of the Gambia Football Association (GFA), has described Paul Put, head coach of The Gambian senior national team, the Scorpions, as a great personality who has the country at heart. “I am very happy that the government has given us a great personality in the person of Paul Put, a very hard working coach. We are proud to be working with him. We can only pray for him so that he can have result-oriented tenure before the end of his stay in the country,” Bojang said of Mr. Put. “The government, the ministry, the FA and every Gambian are fully aware of Paul’s intention in trying to uplift the standard of Gambian football and we will work closely with him to help him realise his dream of guiding the country wherever he wants to guide it to,” the General Secretary of the GFA told Gamsports Online, in an interview with this reporter in his Office, at the new GFA Secretariat in Kanifing South, last Tuesday. Jammeh added, “It is an executive desire that we should work with Paul and we are proud to be working with him and, more importantly, he is a great personality who has this country at heart and hopefully he would achieve great results for The Gambia before the end of his stay.” The Secretary-General is fully aware of Paul’s intention to go abroad to look out for more foreign-based joshplayers to fill the gap left by a few others who were reported to have shown less commitment to the national call. “I feel sad for Paul because he lost so many players who were very much closed to his heart and he is really disappointed with their behaviours,” Bojang said, adding that the Belgian needs replacement for them to strengthen the team. According to Bojang, they have no other alternative but to give Put the green light to go and look for more Gambian foreign-based players as possible replacement for the departed players. He however stopped short at mentioning names. The Belgian tactician, Paul Put, who went so close to guiding The Gambia to its first-ever Nations Cup finals, told this reporter last Wednesday of his intention to go abroad to look for more Gambian players for the senior national team, and the Manchester United youngster, Joshua King, a Gambian by origin, is understood to be one of Put’s targets.
