Trinidad and Tobago appoints Saintfiet as national team coach

Trinidad and Tobago National Men’s and Women’s football teams have new senior head coaches.

Belgium’s Tom Saintfiet replaces the recently fired Stephen Hart was given a two-year contract to lead the Men’s National team.
With T&T currently engaged in the CONCACAF final round World Cup Qualifying tournament, they have yet to pick up a point after two matches. Saintfiet tenure as head coach may hinge on the team’s performance in their next two outings against Panama on March 24 and Mexico on March 28.

Carolina Morace of Italy took charge of the women’s team. The 52-year-old Italian is a former national striker. She took up a management portfolio previously managing the Canadian National Women’s team from 2009 to 2011. Morace was the first woman to be inducted into the Italian football hall of fame, a distinction she picked up in 2014. She was awarded a two-and-a-half-year contract which runs until 2019 she will also oversee educational development in the women’s football programme.

Saintfiet said his immediate focus is to take Trinidad and Tobago to the World Cup, a job he will not try to do alone. Trinidad and Tobago Football Association President David John Williams said, if Saintfiet doesn’t get the results T&T need in the next two matches Saintfiet could find himself out of a job.
