Things have changed over the years, but the growth has been immense and I look forward to competing among the best,” Aussems said as quoted by the Guardian.

“Currently, it is important to get involved in recruitment and see how we can strengthen our squad and become competitive in the upcoming league season. I know the club aims to compete for honors and top four finish. I know it is going to be tough but nothing is impossible,” said Aussems.

Aussems, who is set to commence his duties on July 1, this year, is already working with the management team on player registrations, highlighting his proactive approach to his new role.

Aussems is a UEFA Pro licensed coach with extensive experience managing prominent clubs in Africa, Europe, and Asia.His previous roles include coaching Al Hilal Omdurman (Sudan), Simba SC (Tanzania), AFC Leopards (Kenya), Shenzhen Ruby (China), as well as Evian Thonon Gaillard FC and Angers SCO in France.
