The Fiji Football Association is reminding players and its affiliates to follow the right procedure during the player transfer window which is currently open.
The call comes after a player is believed to have used the window wrongly for his own gain.
While the name of the player and districts involved remain suppressed, Fiji FA Chief Executive Officer Mohammed Yusuf says, those involved in the player transfers need to be very careful.
“The districts and players need to follow proper legislation procedures. If a player applies for a transfer to his last district he played and copied to Fiji FA, the corresponding district needs to respond within seven days. The player feels he needs to withdraw his application, he can only get it done after ten days of the date the application was lodged and registered.”
Yusuf adds that disciplinary action could be taken against players if the right path is not followed.
“Legislations 4.1 and 7.1 of the Player Transfer Window clearly states the conditions which needs to be followed. We do not want any player to take advantage of the transfer window inappropriately. It has happened in the past where we have suspended players and fined them and we won’t hesitate to do the same if the need arises.”
The transfer window closes next Wednesday.
