In Nigeria, he managed Udoji United and in Ghana he managed several clubs including All Blacks and B.A. United.Coach Nimely has received certificates from the German Football Association, and the Winneba College of Ghana.He said while he was out of the country, he monitored soccer events in Liberia. He said he was aware of the national team’s loss to Togo when the team led 2-0 and was forced to settle for draw with the Togolese.Coach Nimely admitted that these are situations that try the patience of coaches. However he noted that he has dealt with players in so many trying instances that he is well groomed to handle situations that may likely baffle others.“With President George Weah,” Coach Nimely said, “it makes it interesting that we can work together to get our country to be in the African Nations Cup and possibly the World Cup.” He said it should not surprise the reader that he has mentioned two important soccer events since they are central to any country’s growth as a sporting nation.He added, “President Weah is a legend and so it will be great for Liberia to be at the World Cup.”Coach Nimely said Liberia has the best prospect to give him the opportunity to make use of his experience to assist in the country’s quest to be competitive in the various tournaments that are organized by the world soccer body, FIFA, as well as its continental body, Confederation of African Football.He called on stakeholders to make use of local materials, particularly those who are qualified and competent to make judicious use of resources to help the country.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
