Former Suva coach and Fiji’s most experienced coach Gurjit Singh will join Rewa next Tuesday to assist the Delta Tigers in their first ever OFC Champions League appearance.
Singh who has guided many districts to title wins on the domestic scene has vast OFC Champs League experience as well having coached Lautoka,Suva,Navua and Labasa in the regional competition.
He also assisted Vanuatu champions Amicale as their technical advisor two seasons ago.
Singh confirmed that he was approached by Rewa to help and agreed.
“They approached me to assist them for OFC Champs League and since I will be free after my holidays, I agreed to help them out.”
“Rewa is appearing in the OFC Champs League for the first time and it will be good to help them in the preparations.”
He also confirmed that he has made arrangements with Amicale FC boss Andew Leung to assist the Delta Tigers by releasing some foreign players to strengthen their campaign.
Singh and former national skipper Tagi Vonolagi will assist Marika Rodu as technical advisors.
“I have coached both Tagi and Rodu and it will be good to work with the two of them. We three have to work hard as competition is tough and Fiji clubs have to be well prepared.”
“I also agreed to assist them as I see Rewa President Nazeel Buksh as a man with vision and someone with great soccer knowledge. This makes the job of the coaches easier.”
Rewa is pooled with AS Tefana of Tahiti with Erakor Golden Star, another Vanuatu club set to make their debut and Marist FC.
