Jean Sseninde is “humbled” and “cannot wait” to work with South Sudan after she was appointed in a new role by South Sudan Football Association.
The SSFA appointed Sseninde as a consultant for South Sudan Women’s Football.
“I m humbled for this exciting new opportunity as the SSFA Women’s Football Consultant,” the Crested Cranes defender told The-SportsNation.
“Women’s Football around the continent is on the rise thanks to efforts from both CAF & FIFA, and SSFA have ambitions to take women’s football to another level.
“I cannot wait to work as part of this ambitious team to contribute towards taking women’s football in South Sudan to another level and also be apart of this journey right from scratch.”
She will be working to implement South Sudan’s four year women’s football strategy sensitization plan starting next month.
South Sudan’s Women national team played their first game last year at the CECAFA Championship and are yet to form a league.
Sseninde adds: “A relatively new country on the scene when it comes to women football, so I know this isn’t going to be a walk in the park but am ready to throw everything at it because I want to see big transparent changes come 2024 in SSFA regarding women football Development.”
Currently, Sseninde plays for English side Wakefield Trinity Ladies FC and seats on the CAF Women’s Football Committee.
