Zigi, Owusu get new coach at Sochaux

Former Senegal international Omar Daf will be coaching Black Stars goalkeeper Lawrence Ati Zigi and French-born Ghanaian midfielder Elisha Owusu at Sochaux.

Daf, who was part of the Senegalese team which reached the quarter finals of the 2002 World Cup was appointed on Sunday as the new coach of Sochaux following the sacking of Jose Manuel Aira.

The Senegalese handled Sochaux on a temporal basis in 2013 and 2015 when the club was struggling.

He is expected to change the fortunes of the club and the Ghanaian pair could play key roles.

Zigi who was signed from Redbull Salzburg in the summer of 2017 as back-up goalkeeper has made just one appearance this season which was a French Cup game against Stede Brest on August 14 this year whilst defensive midfielder Elisha Owusu on loan from Lyon has also made 12 ligue 2 appearances providing one assist.

Both players could be given maximum playing time under Daf with the Stade Auguste Bonal,Montbéliard outfit fighting for survival.
