has been appointed as head coach of the national team for the second time.

Burkina Faso’s football federation has reappointed Paulo Duarte as head coach. The Portuguese replaces Gernot Rohr who departed for his home country, Germany.

Duarte had been coaching the Gabon national team followed by a brief stint at CS Sfaxien before rejoining the black stallion. The man who raised the Stallions from obscurity had once been linked with the Zamalek coaching job.

He was previously in charge of Burkina Faso between 2007 and 2012; leading them to two African Cup of Nations appearances.


I have dedicated part of my time in this bad world to following African football. From CECAFA to WAFU, COSAFA to UNAF & even the forgotten UNIFFAC.
