Farina welcomes players to join coaching course

Farina said it was fantastic and a big positive for Fiji FA. #“As we know in the past, teachers have been dominating and involved but you know there is no better people than teachers, but I think it’s a way forward to get some current and former players in also,” he said.#“If you talking about youth development, developing skills of young people when you have former players or current players who are still playing and getting involved in grassroots development or youth football. It makes sense that they will be able demonstrate and even show skills to our young footballers.”#The former Australian coach said the more former and current players are involved the better it is for youth development.#“Fiji Football is moving in a different direction now and we need more coaches. We need lots of coaches in Fiji and we need four or five assistant coaches for our national teams. #“In terms of national teams once we appoint head coaches for the under-17 and under-20s, we want to introduce four or five assistant coaches who can be mentored by them or learn with them.”#For the first time a number of current football players are participating in the week-long course which ends tomorrow.#Suva reps Pita Rabo and Maciu Dundamu, Labasa rep Pita Bolaitoga, Rakiraki and former Ba and Suva rep Ronald Lawrence and Lautoka defender Peni Finau are amongst 25 participants broadening their coaching knowledge. #Also, joining them a former national striker Solomone Catarogo of Nadogo, Keni Doidoi of Ba and Labasa rep Dhirend Chand.#
