17 February: Foreign or Local Coaches, Video Technology and CAF Champions League

On this week's show we revisit the debate as to whether foreign coaches are better than local coaches? Cameroon won the AFCON with Belgian coach Hugo Broos, but there are some very talented African coaches around, including Senegal's Aliou Cisse – we hear from Cisse. In Ghana this is a hot issue, as Avram Grant has left the Black Stars. We ask fans if they want another foreigner to take over. In Europe, as Germany's Bundesliga approves the use of video assistant referees for next season, we ask how much technology will affect world football?  And listeners share their hopes for the CAF Champions League and CAF Confederation Cup.

Do you think that foreign coaches are better than local coaches, or is it time for African coaches to be given more of a chance? Send us your comments on Facebook (see below), by email to or via Whats App +44-7955-232780.
