We have to invest in knowing ourselves; we have to know that each and everyone of us harbors the unique powers that Mama Sranan gave us. This gives us unique abilities and a unique story as Most Forested Country on Earth, which we should share with the world.– Dean Gorré
Dean Roberto Gorré (born 10 September 1970) is a Surinamese football coach and former player. Gorré made his debut on 20 April 1988 for SVV and went on to play for clubs as Feyenoord, FC Groningen, Ajax, all in the Netherlands and Huddersfield Town, Barnsley and Blackpool in the United Kingdom. After his playing career he was appointed head coach at RBC Roosendaal in The Netherlands and worked as youth coach at Ajax and the Scottish national under-17 football team.
In 2015 he had his first spell as head coach of the national squad of his native country Suriname. He left after coaching the team for 3 official Surinamese games with 1 win and 2 losses. In July 2018 Gorré returned as national coach of Suriname. He signed a contract for two years. His goal to enforce Surinamese qualification for the Gold Cup, the championship of North and Central America and the Caribbean, for the first time was achieved. This was made possible via the Concacaf Nations League, which started in September 2018 and by beating Nicaragua 2–1 in the final away groupsmatch. The subsequent participation at the Gold Cup proved to be the biggest succes of the national squad as of now, inspiring the whole country.
Apart from soccer, Dean actively worked towards shaping one Suriname dream for the future. Per October 31, 2021 paths between the Suriname Soccer Association (SVB) and head coach Gorré parted. However, because Dean wanted to remain involved in a positive movement for Suriname, he decided to become a Global FOREST93 Ambassador. In the past years, working in Suriname and traveling throughout the country, he became convinced that Suriname’s new dream for the future should be green. As an ambassador he will be working on amplifying the FOREST93 messages across platforms in the world.
