RAYMOND Singh is back in football with a warning for affiliated districts and a burning desire to re-contest the Fiji FA elections in future.
The former Lautoka Football Association president, who was part of the Wheels of Change Team at the 2011 FFA elections, had stayed away after unsuccessfully contesting the vice-president's post.
"I am back, back to help ensure that we somehow get away from this footballing quagmire we find ourselves sinking in more and more each day," Singh said.
Singh is backing Iqbal Khan (West), Hussein Saheb (North) and Arvind Dutt (South) for the vice-president's posts at the FFA Annual Congress elections in Lautoka next Wednesday.
"They have my full support. District affiliates should open up their eyes and vote for people they feel will bring about a change for the better," he said.
"Remember how the motion was put through and passed during the 2011 elections about the super premier competition being extended from 10 to 12 teams.
"Districts officials fell for it. Then a few months later, this decision was overturned at an FFA Board of Control meeting and what we have now? From 10 to 12 to 10 again and now down to eight teams in the top division for the new season. Need I say more?"
Singh, who was with Lautoka when they won the 2000 and 2002 Fiji FACT and 2008 IDC titles, is keen to re-contest and serve as a vice-president of the Fiji FA.
"Not this year, but I will wait and contest Tarunesh Reddy's vice-president's post," Singh quipped.
The FFA annual congress coincides with the Courts IDC at Churchill Park next week.
