[Football] Barnes in talks over Jamaica job

Recommended Posts

England great John Barnes is in talks with the Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) about becoming their new head coach, BBC Sport understands.

Jamaican-born former Liverpool winger Barnes, 44, is set to meet with JFF officials in the next few days.

Jamaica sacked their Brazilian technical director Rene Simoes last week after a disastrous start to their World Cup qualifying campaign.

Barnes has been out of management since being sacked by Celtic in 2000.

The JFF is expected to issue a statement on Tuesday or Wednesday confirming it is in discussions with Barnes.

Jamaica are currently last in their four-team World Cup qualifying group on one point from three games, with three games remaining.

To have a chance of advancing to the final stage of the Concacaf qualifying round, they must beat Mexico, Honduras and Canada and hope other results go their way.
