Rob Sherman, former professional footballer who played for Cardiff City, Swansea City, and Hull City, has been appointed as the new Head Coach of the Bula Boys, the national football team of Fiji. His appointment comes after the expiration of Danish coach Flemming Serritslev’s term at the end of January.
Sherman has signed a three-year contract with the Fiji Football Association (FFA) and has expressed his desire to continue working with the team beyond that period if given the opportunity. He brings with him a wealth of experience in coaching, having previously served as Technical Director of Football Federation Australia and worked with various national teams in the Oceania Football Confederation.
As a former Wales international player, Sherman also has a deep understanding of international football and what it takes to succeed at the highest level. He is known for his tactical acumen, his ability to develop young players, and his commitment to building strong team cultures.
One of Sherman’s first major tournaments as head coach of the Bula Boys will be the Pacific Games, which will be held in Honiara, Solomon Islands, at the end of the year. This will be an important test for the team and an opportunity for Sherman to showcase his coaching skills on the international stage.
