AFCON 2023: Tom Saintfiet Resigned as Gambia Coach

Tom Saintfiet has resigned as Gambia’s coach following the team’s stunning exit from the Africa Cup of Nations on Tuesday.


The 50-year-old Belgian technician announced his decision following the Scorpions’ late setback (3-2) against Cameroon in their last Group C encounter, a result that leaves his team in last place in the group with no points, despite all the excitement she caused throughout the competition.


Saintfiet, who has coached various African national teams, has been in charge of the Gambia squad since 2018. He led the little country, which is flanked by Senegal on Africa’s west coast, to its first-ever qualifying for the 2021 African Cup. His team advanced to the tournament’s quarterfinals.


“Thank you for your service,” the Gambia Football Federation told our country after qualifying for two consecutive CANs, which was no coincidence. “We wish him good luck.”
