Kaba Diawara confirmed as Guinea coach

Former Guinean international Kaba Diawara, ex-player of Bordeaux, Paris SG and Arsenal in particular, has been confirmed as Guinea’s coach, the country’s soccer officials announced on Thursday.
Kaba Diawara was chosen among four candidates and judged “more likely to lead the national team towards the expected performances”, said Thursday to the press Séga Diallo, vice-president of the Normalization Committee which manages the current affairs of the Guinean soccer federation.
He had been appointed coach of the “Syli National” of Guinea three months before the African Cup of Nations (AfCoN) held in Cameroon (January 9-February 6), succeeding the French Didier Six, who was in office since 2019.
Guinea was eliminated in the last African Cup of Nations in the 8th final by Gambia (1-0).
For the qualifiers of the African Cup of Nations 2023 in Côte d’Ivoire, Guinea is in the same group as Malawi, Ethiopia and Egypt. The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has awarded the organization of the African Cup of Nations 2025.
Kaba Diawara played in his hometown, Toulon, then in Bordeaux. He then played for many clubs, including Arsenal, Marseille, PSG, Nice and Gaziantepspor (Turkey).
