Why Suva? Hughes tells of move

The Dreketi native who started his football career in Rewa said, the reason he switched to Suva was to play in OFC Champions League.
“I started playing with Rewa and it has been a very hard decision but it is my dream to play in the Champions League,“ he said.
“I want to get more exposure and experience playing in the international arena so I can do my best in the Olympic Games in Rio.
The 20-year-old who has been instrumental in most of Rewa’s victories said he would try his best to fit into the style of football Suva is playing.
“I will try my best to play the style of football Suva is playing and will try my best to show my worth to the Capital City side.”
Hughes said playing in the Champions League would be totally different than playing in the National League and U20 World Cup.
“I know playing in the Champions League will be tough as there will be more senior and professional players playing for other clubs as well.”
Hughes thanked Rewa Football Association for having faith in him and giving him break when he was only 17.
‘’I must thank the Rewa Football family for looking after me well and giving me a break at an early age.
“I thank coach, Marika Rodu for moulding me to become a better player today. I will always look up to him as he taught me a lot.”
“Lastly I would like to thank president of Nakasi Lions, Mr Pita Cecil for taking care of me and assisting me in every way especially during my mum’s funeral.”
Hughes wished Rewa all the best in the national league and tournament commitments this year.
Meanwhile, Suva have also secured the services of national goalkeeper Beniaminio Mateinaqara, Samuel Drudru and Lautoka’s Kelvin Naidu while Nadi have registered Nadroga’s Anish Khem, New Zealand based Apisai Smith, Mohammed Suhaib and James Hoyt
