The Botswana Football Association (BFA) has looked to Christoph Rocholl to assess local football and provide possible solutions.

Nicknamed the Zebras, the Botswana senior national team has struggled in the last 12 months having moved from 87th to 146 on the FIFA world rankings.

German football expert Rocholl has arrived in Botswana to start a two-month diagnosis of Botswana football and he is expected to provide answers at the end of his stay.

According to Southern Times, the BFA president Maclean Letshwiti has stated that the Germany football association (DFB) will meet the costs of the audit, with the local mother body responsible for Rocholl’s internal travel and accommodation expenses.

“He is doing a situational analysis on the state of football in Botswana," Letshwiti said.

"After his study, he will then determine the kind of resource we need for our football. Locally, we do not have the expertise and know how.

“They have assisted countries like India and Costa Rica, and the results are evident."

Rocholl, a football scientist, is expected to travel the length and breadth of Botswana visiting regions, to assess the situation before presenting the outcome to the BFA leadership.
