In collaboration with the Asian Football Confederation and sponsored by the ASEAN Football Federation, the Football Federation of Cambodia launched its inaugural A-Licence coaching course on Friday.
The 27-day course has attracted 27 participants, the majority of whom are Cambodian. Laos, Myanmar, Japan, Switzerland and Nigeria are also represented. It is being conducted by AFC instructor Narayaman Nair Sivaji of Singapore, with Naga Corp coach Prak Sovannara as assistant instructor.
FFC general secretary Kul Sophanna said the course gave coaches the opportunity to gain more knowledge and experience in both the theory and practical aspects of coaching profess-ional football.
Course co-ordinator Chhaing Piseth noted that Cambodia had produced only two A-Licence coaches: Prak Sovannara and Choun Malin, who died in an accident several years ago.
