Ghanaian Division Two League side Great Warriors have confirmed the appointment of Thomas Geist as the club’s new sporting director.
The experienced German – who will start work immediately – has signed a two-year contract, with an option for another year, with the Adenta-based outfit.
The 53-year-old, who has managed over eight lower-tier sides in German, accepted the opportunity to work with the ambitious division two side after holding a fruitful discussion with the club’s president Fred Gozzo in France.
“I’m happy with the step we have taken, it’s a significant one and I hope it will help us achieve our goal of building a formidable foundation for the future,” Gozzo told GHANASoccernet.com
“Geist is a very experienced coach especially when it comes to nurturing good talents hence when we had the opportunity to grab someone of his stature, we didn’t hesitate. I believe with the help of our coach we’ll achieve the desired ambition.”
Geist holds a UEFA License B coaching certificate.
