REHOBOTH, 19 SEP (NAMPA) – Namibia Football Association Skorpion Zinc Women’s Super League outfit, Omaheke Queens appointed former Civics player and current Omaheke boys Under-17 assistant coach Ruddy Nunuheb as the team’s head coach on Tuesday.
Nunuheb in an interview with Nampa on Wednesday confirmed his appointment and said he is happy about the chance given by the management of Queens to plough back his football knowledge in the Women’s Super League outfit.
“I am happy to have been given the chance to take this team to greater heights and make them a formidable force to be reckoned with. The hunger to succeed and the willingness to learn is evident from the girls after I conducted our first training session on Tuesday,” Nunuheb said.
He added that he will change the way the team approaches matches and that teams will now find it hard to beat Queens in Gobabis.
“I will have to instil the tactical and technical discipline in the team. Eighty per cent of our sessions will focus mainly on those aspects,” he remarked.
Nunuheb indicated that the game has evolved and that girls should be allowed to play football as it helps them to deal with social issues.
“Our girls in Namibia face several inter-related social challenges such as HIV and AIDS, teenage pregnancy, domestic violence, alcohol and drug abuse and dropping out of school. As a father myself with a daughter who plays football, it is more a great platform to mould these girls into becoming better women in the future,” Nunuheb said.
The Gobabis-based outfit finished the 2018/19 Skorpion Super League campaign in 10th spot, with Tura Magic Ladies crowned as champions.
