Nasir Salé will be presented, this Tuesday afternoon, as head coach of the senior female team of Ferroviário de Maputo, two-time African champion, on the day that the “locomotives” mark 96 years since their foundation.
The event will take place at the premises of the “locomotive” club in downtown Baixa, and will be one of the highest points of the community’s festivities, something marked by the pandemic of COVID-19.
Salé reached an agreement with Ferroviário de Maputo after long months of negotiation, which were affected by the fact that the technician had been kept long months in Côte d’Ivoire, where he had gone to guide clinics for local coaches.
In Abidjan, the experienced Mozambican coach was enticed with a proposal to guide the senior women’s team in Côte d’Ivoire, but the desire to work in the Amada Homeland ended up weighing on him.
In fact, the connection with the Railway of Maputo opens up good prospects for the coach to return to take over the technical command of the senior women’s team in Mozambique, with negotiations in this direction taking place with the Mozambican Basketball Federation.
Nasir Salé enjoys an excellent reputation in terms of African basketball thanks to his rich Palmarés, where three African champion titles stand out (2007 and 2008 by Desportivo Maputo and 2012 by Liga Desportiva), one of African vice-champion (2010), one bronze medal (2009), twice African champion of zone 6 (2004 and 2006).
At the level of National teams, Nasir Salé holds the gold medal in the Lusophone games, participation in the Qualification Tournament of the Olympic Games in 2012, vice African champion (2013), participation in the world championship.
Internally Salé has worked in clubs such as Maxaquene, Desportivo Maputo, Liga Desportiva and Ferroviário da Beira, where the fact that he was 13 times national champion is noted. He has already worked abroad in Angola, becoming champion of the city of Luanda by Inter Clube de Angola. (LANCEMZ)
