The Gambia Head Coach Tom Saintfiet has resigned after the Scorpions failed to advance to the next stage.
The Scorpions lost to the Indomitable Lions 2-3 in a group stage match that was punctuated by many suspenses.
Contacted by JollofNews, Gambia Football Federation (GFF) Communication Officer, Baboucarr Camara, confirmed the veracity of the information, which is being circulated on social media platforms.
In a statement posted on its Facebook page, GFF seized the opportunity to extol Tom Saintfiet:
“Thank you for your service gaffer. After everything is said and done, Gambia will indeed miss a great tactician. Five and a half years of incredible service to our nation, qualifying us to back to back AFCON was no fluke. Always the best of luck.”
