Sami to assist Lautoka

Tuesday, April 08, 2014

FORMER national rep and Labasa coach Anand Sami is helping Dennis Singh groom the Lautoka team.

Sami, who is based in Australia, is in the country to watch his son Shivan represent Amicale FC of Vanuatu in the Oceania Champions League which starts next week.

Shivan played for Fiji in the Oceania under-23 playoffs in 2008.

Blues coach Singh was appreciative of Sami's offer to help mould the team combinations in his spare time.

"Anand is one of my mentors," Singh said.

"I played with him and he coached me as well. So there is a bond there. He has been inspirational to the players bringing in new ideas."

Lautoka lost several key players to other districts in the transfer window which closed last month.

However the Blues have signed up Eron Underwood from Suva, Poasa Bainivalu from Rewa and Kavaia Rawaqa from Labasa.

Lautoka is placed seventh in the Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football League, one spot above wooden spoon holders Navua.
