The move to seek the services of foreign coaches has been welcomed as a right step in raising the bar on football standards in the country.
According to Tusker Premier League coach Michael Nam, the arrival of foreign coaches will not only be good to the teams they work for but also to players and coaches of other clubs in the league.
The Karuturi Sport coach, the clubs will have a lot to learn in terms of handling their players and coaches including standards of remuneration.
-The influx of foreign coaches is a healthy move since it will raise standards of our league in terms of coaches' working conditions and packages while making the environment conducive for player development, said Nam.
He admitted that the coaches are more exposed and their advice is likely to be hindered to by football administrators than the opinion from local coaches on crucial decisions.
