He was later made the deputy director at the Department of Youth and Sports working under then Director Cherno Bara Touray. He became director after Cherno Bara left. He was later made the technical adviser to former Youth and Sports Minister Samba Faal before he became the general manager at the Independence Stadium and Friendship Hostel.

GFA calls off sensitisation tour
In another development, the Normalisation Committee of the GFA regrets to inform the general public that the proposed countrywide tour to stakeholders in the regions in a bid to sensitise them on the changes at the helm of affairs of the GFA, re-organisation of the GFA League, restructuring of football in the regions and review the GFA Constitution with the view to amending and aligning it with the FIFAaccepted statues has been postponed until further notice.
postponement of the sensitisation tour is necessitated by unforeseen
circumstances beyond the control of the GFA. Nonetheless, the Normalisation
Committee wishes to reassure the general public and its major stakeholders in
the regions of its burning desire to continue working with them for the greater
good of the game and would duly inform them of the new dates of the tour as
soon as possible.
The GFA apologises for any inconvenience this postponement may have caused and would like to thank all the stakeholders for their renewed interest and undiluted commitment to football.
