Bahrain Football Association (BFA) has renewed the contract of its Portuguese national football team coach Helio Sousa.
The successful coach signed the contract days before Bahrain’s crucial qualifiers for Fifa World Cup 2022 and AFC Asian Cup 2023.
BFA is keen on maintaining the team’s technical stability and building on its achievements, BFA president Shaikh Ali bin Khalifa Al Khalifa said.
The contract renewal is based on the goals and vision set by His Majesty King Hamad’s representative for humnitarian work and youth affairs and Supreme Council for Youth and Sports (SCYS) chairman Shaikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa and SCYS first deputy chairman, General Sports Authority chairman and Bahrain Olympic Committee president Shaikh Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa.
“The tremendous support of Shaikh Nasser and Shaikh Khalid is a source of great motivation for the team members to achieve best results,” said Sousa, who helped Bahrain win their first Gulf Cup.
