Former Orlando Pirates coach David Snewe, who had a short stint with coastal first division outfit Blue Boys last season, temporarily ended his coaching career this week.The decorated coach, affectionately known as Phella has ended speculations of future coaching jobs, insisting that he will be taking time off to concentrate on other ‘endeavors’. Snewe who was a prolific talisman for Black Africa during his heydays was the first non-Namibian Defense Force (NDF) member to guide the Mighty Gunners to the Namibia Premier League during the 2006/2007 promotion campaign.
“I am the only coach from outside to coach them (Mighty Gunners) and I don’t think there will be anybody again from outside to coach them as they are an army club”.
The Leo/NFA cup winning coach also said he has no intention of taking up any role at the Gunners after returning to Otjiwarongo three months ago. He expressed his disappointment after failing to guide Blue Boys back to the NPL during his short spell with the coastal side that was relegated to division one at the end of 2010/11 after finishing third behind Tura Magic and Monotronics Football clubs.
“The Blue Boys job was a voluntary one and not a contract as some assumed. I was approached to help out and I couldn’t say no. I can’t say I will not coach again but at the moment I am not” he says.
Snewe holds a CAF B coaching license and has been a coach for more than 12 years.
