Former Soca Warrior Brent Sancho was happy with the latest development, but noted that many of the players involved in legal action against the T&T Football Association had suffered many loses.
Sancho and a number of former players were present when the Prime Minister announced the debt settlement
Former Special Adviser to the then Trinidad and Tobago Football Jack Warner issued a statement, saying he noted the Prime Minister’s decision.
Warner stated that he wished the Soca Warriors well and hoped that the Government’s move brings closure to the matter.
He however pointed out that it is his wish that the furniture and archival material which the Football Association lost when the footballers levied on the Federation will be returned.
Warner also said that if the Prime Minister wanted to demonstrate that her Government’s action was truly one of benevolence and not Public Relations, then he was wishing that she goes further and save the home of Oliver Camps.
Warner said that Camps has signed a promissory note of $480,000 US on behalf of the Football body in order to procure the services of a coach of the national team.
TTFA president Tim Kee disclosed a copy of a letter he has sent to the Prime Minister in which he expressed his Association’s gratitude for settlement of the debt.
His letter was copied to the presidents of FIFA and the CONCACAF.
