Our preparation never ended: Buksh

The Rewa Football side is taking each day at the training grounds seriously as they countdown to their first ever participation in the OFC Champions League.

After playing Lautoka, the Delta Tigers travelled to Ba last Sunday to play a friendly match with the Vodafone National Team.

Association president Nazeel Buksh said their preparation never ended.

“We were doing few light training in December, but since the start of this year we have picked up our preparations.

“We came all the way to Ba just to play a friendly match with the national team and it shows how serious we are with our preparations for champions league and the start of national league,” Buksh said.

Rewa also have the service of the three Brazilian players joining them for champions league; Galvao Maximo Diego will boost the backline at the center back’s position, Tannus De Oliviera Junior Marcelo at the center link while Silver Junior Elias would add more firepower in the strikers position.

Buksh said they are adapting well to the local environment and their style of play.

“This was the reason why we brought them early, not just few days or weeks away from champions league but actually two months before the kickoff.

“They’re adapting well to our way of playing and contributing towards our own improvement towards the game.”

Vodafone National Football coach Christophe Gamel said he is willing to help both Ba and Rewa.

“I will help our two clubs Rewa and Ba joining with their own objectives.

“I see the two presidents are very humble person and open for this kind of work.

“We have to work hand in hand,” Gamel said.

Rewa is drawn in Group D and plays Marist FC in their first game on March 11, battles AS Tefana on March 17 before playing Erakor Golden Star in their final pool match on March 17.
