KingFut got in touch with national team manager Beto Bianchi to get his thoughts on ex-Ahly striker Flavio’s appointment as assistant manager.

Flavio Amado, who played for between 2005 and 2009, was appointed as the Angola national team assistant manager on Saturday.

“It is a pleasure [to be working with him]! Flavio Amado has been working with me at Petro [Atletico] in Luanda. When I was hired by this club Flavio was already there. He had left his playing career and stepped up as a coach assistant,” Beto enthused.

“Now that the [national team] has hired me I have brought Flavio with me because he is an excellent person and a great professional. With the experience that he has, he can help a lot the players by giving advice.

Beto then talked about his expectations for the coming period.

“I’m sure he’s going to help a lot with his experience to our younger players! We are initiating a new project to return to the Angola team its true value that was lost during those last years,” he concluded.

The 37-year-old is the only Angolan player to score at a World Cup finals, having done so in their lone appearance at Germany in 2006.
