Chiquinho Conde is Mozambique’s new coach, hopeful

IN CHARGE—Conde

Mozambique have appointed Chiquinho Conde as the new head coach of the men’s national team.

The 55-year-old takes over from Horacio Goncalves, who was sacked last week after just six months in charge.

The Portuguese coach was dismissed after back-to-back defeats by Cameroon in World Cup qualifying this month, which left the Mambas unable to reach next year’s tournament in Qatar.

Conde represented Mozambique during his playing career and had stints in Portugal with Braga, Vitoria Setubal and Sporting CP.

“I want to bring the pride of representing the national team,” he said after agreeing a contract until 2023. —BBC
