The Gambia Football Federation (GFF) has appointed Abdoulie Bojang as the new head coach of the Gambia National U-20 team. The announcement was made on the GFF’s Facebook page on Tuesday, July 25, 2023.

The federation said that Bojang was chosen for his wealth of experience and proven successful track record.

“Mr. Bojang’s recent appointment came on the heels of his impressive work performance and efforts towards the overall achievement of the set goals of the National U-20 team. Bojang was in charge of the National U-20 team at the West Africa Football Union (WAFU) Zone A Championship in Mauritania, where the Gambia lost to Senegal in the Final and thus qualified for the AFCON tournament in Egypt as Silver medallists and subsequently to the  FIFA World Cup in Argentina 2023 where the Gambia finished in the Round of 16 Knock Out phase against eventual winners Uruguay. At these engagements, Bojang was serving in an acting position and following the recommendation of the Technical and Development Committee of the GFF, his promotion as the Head Coach takes forth with immediate effect,” the statement read.

The federation expressed their excitement in entrusting him with the job, as they have been consistently impressed with his performance, effectiveness, and efficiency.

“As such, we are thrilled to reward Mr. Abdoulie Bojang for his efforts as we entrust him with the highest responsibility based on his effectiveness and efficiency in the performance of his work. We are truly confident that Mr. Bojang will continue to live up to expectations. A former Steve Biko football club protégé who became one of the Gambia National team’s meteorite midfielders at his time is a well-respected young man with a decent track record of discipline and tolerance,” the statement reads

“Bojang had his formative football with Flamingos and Bendula FC in the Bakau Nawettan before ascending to National League football with Steve Biko as the only team he ever played for in the domestic First Division. His respect and obedience to authority are much liked by all, and overall, his passion for grassroots football development is unmatched. We therefore once again congratulate Abdoulie Bojang for his deserved promotion as Head of the National U-20 team and wish him all success during this period,” the statement concludes.
