An unknown Irishman Jonathan Mckinstry has been installed as caretaker coach of Sierra Leone.

He replaces Sweden’s Lars Olof Mattsson who resigned a few weeks ago.

Mckinstry’s appointment came after a meeting between the Sierra Leone FA and officials from the sports ministry.

The Irishman – who has no previous coaching experience in Africa – will be in charge of the Leone Stars’ remaining 2014 World Cup qualifiers.

According to the Sierra Leone FA, he will be considered for the job on a permanent basis if he does well against Tunisia, Cape Verde and Equatorial Guinea.
