Good go coach Gamel

Shad Alfaz Ali, Navua | Thursday, May 25, 2017
WE must thank Christophe Gamel for selecting the three Navua players into the national football team.

This proves that he is committed to development in addition to national team preparation.

The selection of the three, including young Manav Permal, is a step in the right direction that we all must support wholeheartedly.

In addition to this, we all must support our coach and allow him time to prepare teams capable of competing at least with our neighbouring Pacific Islanders.

According to reports, the team has not had enough preparation time for the match against Solomon Islands.

I again urge Fiji FA to plan their programs well and take these international friendlies seriously.

We need to put plans in place and have a comfortable environment for our coach and team to train and prepare. We would also want our coach to share his experiences with Fiji FA executives on overall restructure of Fiji FA operations and look into areas of concern.

Important topics of discussion could include the benefits of reducing the super premier teams to eight and the bans imposed on foreign players restricting their participation in local tournaments and league games.

Fiji FA should be in a position to analyse the benefits and effects of these landmark decisions and use it for its planning for the future.

All the best to our team.
