Amrouche on the right track – Nare

In a rather bizarre twist of events, Daniel Chico Nare emerges as the first local coach to support management changes that came with Adel Amrouche-the newly appointed Zebras head coach. Amrouche, upon his appointment, surveyed players attitude on and off the field and drew a conclusion that the results are beyond reproach and not so pleasing.


The Belgian born gaffer was to later meet with Botswana local coaches to try and find a common understanding. While ordinarily many local coaches are against the employment of Amrouche as a foreign coach, Nare caught a handful of them by surprise, and rather agrees and argues, unwavering with Amrouche that a lot of issues concerning players have to be ironed out. Amrouche was left faltered by Nare’s blend of honesty and brutality. “I think I like Security Systems coach, he is very honest and can be integral in changing the way we do things,” Amrouche told WeekendSport.


Nare has coached a number of premier league clubs and is currently with Security Systems, who to date leads the BTC elite league. He has played 5 games and remarkably won all of them. Nare agrees that players are not serious about their football career and the same attitude can be traced back from individual clubs. He says it has gone unchecked for so many years until it reaches the national teams.


“I believe the coach is on the right track, he needs to be supported. Players have gone out of the rails and this has started from our teams. I, alone, have also stopped giving my players off days because I have realized that they abuse them….bear in mind that alcohol abuse affect football careers in a negative way. These days we cannot export players because their attitudes are misplaced, so the coach is coming up well,” Nare opined.


The former Extension Gunners mentor also said he will gladly accept it should Amorouche call him to be his assistant coach. The new Zebras coach has suspended players who were caught red-handed with alcohol on camp premises. He wants them to face stern disciplinary action first before they can be recalled.


Amrouche’s style of management is not new to Botswana football. One Zebra’s legend who preferred anonymity said sometime in 1998, two Under 20 Zebras players were banned from national duty for a year, after bringing alcohol into the camp. Lovemore Mokgweetsi and Agisanyang Barcos Mosimanegape were the culprits. The former player is of the view that the behavior and attitude was in fact worsened by former Zebras head coach Peter Butler. He orated that coaches should be supported when they instil discipline.  


Recently, one of Zebras former coaches, David Bright was forced to dump Lebogang Ditsile, for alleged drinking sprees. The Jwaneng Galaxy hard tackling midfielder, seemed to have made peace with his attitude and his back in the Zebras fold. For his part, Phaja Butale, also a former Zebras player argued that the coach should not be doing it for the sake of getting a result in the field of play.


“There is no right or wrong way of dealing with misconduct as the new boss, he wants to stamp his authority. I just hope he doesn’t do it at the expense of getting a result. If it were me, I would talk to the boys and give them a stern warning. Unless maybe beforehand he set a code of conduct which they then breached deliberately.” Butale stressed.
