Congratulations have been flooding in after it was announced that Derby County club ambassador, Michael Johnson will take up the role of the Head coach of the Guyana National side.
The popular 44-year-old will stay on in his role of club ambassador at Pride Park and continue working for Rams TV, where he gives his opinion during the football season.
Michael has been with the Rams as club ambassador since 2015 and the club has given its blessing on his new appointment and hopes it will work well with the head coach job.
Guyana which is part of South America has never qualified for the World Cup and is currently in 164th place in the Fifa Rankings of World football Nations. Johno is hoping he can take the Guyanayan team into the top 100 of the World but knows this job is more about promoting the game and getting people interested in the sport.
Michael will become the Guynayan’s most qualified coach when he takes up his duties, having his UEFA Pro License and also a League management diploma to his name.
We all wish Michael the best of luck in his new venture and look forward to his return to his Ambassadorial duties with the Rams.
