OFC boss congratulates Patel

Chung said Patel has taken Fiji Football to new heights during his first term and now has the opportunity to build on that success. #“Firstly, congratulations to Rajesh on his re-appointment to the position of president of Fiji Football Association,” Chung said. #“We have seen in the success of Fiji’s Under-20 and U23 teams. Fiji Football is on the rise. Rajesh has committed to the ongoing development of football at grassroots and youth levels and therefore we will continue to see the fruits of this mandate in the coming years.” #The position of Fiji FA president was contested by Patel and former Lautoka Football president Shalendra Prasad with the former picking up 37 votes in contrast to Prasad’s count of 16. #Tarunesh Reddy earned 44 votes giving him an impressive 83 percent of support in his successful bid to retain the vice-president’s West position. Yogeshwar Singh was also re-elected to vice-president while Labasa businessman Edwin Chand was unopposed and retained the vice-president’s seat in the North. #Patel has secured another four years at the helm of the Fiji FA securing 70 per cent of the votes during the elective congress last Tuesday.#
