Guinea Bissau hires Carlos Manuel



Guinea Bissau football federation has appointed Portuguese manager Carlos Manuel as coach of the national team ahead of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations second round qualifying.

The 54-year-old former midfielder will succeed his compatriot Luis Norton de Matos, who had led the team since 2010.

Manuel has coached a number of football clubs mainly in Portugal including Sporting Lisbon and Benfica but is taking up a national team job for the first time.

The Djurtus have been eliminated from the qualifying campaign of the 2014 FIFA World Cup but are still in the run for the finals of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations and will be hosted by the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon on Saturday in Yaoundé for the return leg of the second round qualifying.

Cameroon scraped a lone goal win in the first leg played in Bissau last February.
