WINDHOEK, 19 FEB (NAMPA) Former Namibia international footballer, Robert Nauseb has joined Walvis Bay-based Namibia Premier League (NPL) side Eleven Arrows as head coach on a three-year contact.
This was confirmed by Killa Samaria, an executive committee member of Arrows on Tuesday, who said the coach will take charge with immediate effect.
We have just reached an agreement with coach Nauseb, he is taking charge of the team with immediate effect and will work with the current technical team going forward, Samaria said.
On his part, the incoming coach expressed delight in joining Arrows, saying when he was approached for the position, the decision to join them was easy.
I share the same vision with the club of doing well by playing beautiful, attractive football. I will not change anything on the current technical team but will look at improving the current squad, he said during a telephonic interview from his new base on Tuesday.
He added that he is aiming to secure a top five position by the end of the current season.
Nauseb said he has a bit of knowledge on Arrows as he played and lost to them as coach of African Stars earlier in the season, and he has watched them play a couple of times.
The team has a lot of youngsters who like to play more as individuals, thats what I have to change. Also, some players do not show enough commitment to the game; I have to convince them to change that thinking, he explained.
The former Brave Warriors midfielder was set to engage in his first training session Tuesday afternoon, before taking charge of his first match on Saturday in Windhoek for the Standard Bank Top 8 Cup.
Before joining Arrows, Nauseb had been clubless after parting ways with African Stars in December 2018, whom he had coached in four NPL matches and two African Champions League games.
They had won two and lost two in NPL while conceding seven goals and scoring five.
They drew one game and won one in the African Champions League.
