Benjamin to serve as Brave Warriors’ second assistant coach

Windhoek-Former Brave Warriors player Collin Benjamin is the new second assistant coach of the Brave Warriors. This was revealed by Brave Warriors head coach Ricardo Mannetti at a press conference held in Windhoek on Wednesday.
“I have decided to bring in an experienced mind on and off the pitch. In a crucial match like this one against Zambia, we need to make sure that we bring in people that have the experience, people that played at big international matches. Collin Benjamin has seen it all. He was a very good player and he is doing a very good job at coaching level. We will announce in the near future what his main role will be in the technical team of the Brave Warriors” Mannetti said.
Meanwhile, Benjamin has already embraced his new role.
“This is a great opportunity for me to serve my country. This is more like a calling for me, I will do my best to assist the team in order for them to win” Benjamin said.
Despite his new venture, Benjamin will continue to be involved in the upliftment of youth football at Hopsol.
At the same occasion head Mannetti announced a team of 25 players, who will face Zambia on the 8th of September.
