What the experts have to say

Lautoka coach Lambert Sarju#“We fielded young players in the tournament and it was a learning experience for them. The weather was also not in our favour but we will go back and prepare for the IDC. To our fans the boys did their best.”#Nadroga coach Ramesh Sharma#“The tournament was well-organised and very competitive. I see the teams are coming up but the standard of refereeing has not gone up and that’s one area of concern.”#Ba captain Alvin Singh#“We played well in the tournament and the boys are doing well to achieve their goals. Whenever we play Nadi they give us a tough game but we will be prepared for the semifinal and we will go in to win the game and qualify for the finals”#Labasa coach Bal Sanju Reddy#“The tournament was okay and very competitive compared to past tournaments. The level of competition was high since all the teams came well-prepared. #“My concern was the standard of refereeing which was quite discouraging where they were not consistent with their decision making. #“Considering this tournament I think our team did well but unfortunately we couldn’t make it to the semis but will come well prepared for the IDC.”#Rewa coach Marika Rodu#“So far so good for us! Everything went according to our plan and we are doing well to in terms of achieving our goal. All games are tough and competitive. #“There are no injuries and there will be no major changes in the team for the semifinal. We are preparing well, reviewing all our games and working on our mistakes.” #Nadi coach Kamal Swamy#“The tournament was organised well. Overall it was great and we were lucky to qualify for the semifinal because of fair play by Suva.#“We will make some changes and we need to rectify problems we had in the midfield. Players that missed the tournament in the Nausori due to commitments will be joining us for the semifinal and we will now have a better prepared side. #“So far we are injury-free.” #Tailevu Naitasiri coach Emmanuel Manu#“I have coached them for only six hours for the first game. It was quite good and they displayed good football against Lautoka and Nadi but faded out against Suva. I might come and help them after this if only I have the time or otherwise I’ll have to goodbye”.#Suva president Mahendra Prasad#“The tournament went according to plan and the standard of soccer has really improved. We can say that overall more goals have been scored in the three days, which means spectators have also enjoyed it.#“Equally all the teams were good and one good thing was that there was not match fixing rumours. The teams really prepared well. #“We will have Kolinio Sivoki back in the team as he has been given the green light to play after he suffered an injury in the pool games.” #
