Swamy wants to stay on after poor OFC performance

Maciu Malo
Tuesday, April 15, 2014

VODAFONE Shop and Save Nadi coach Kamal Swamy says he will not resign from his job following the side's dismal OFC League champions outing that ended yesterday.

Under Swamy's leadership, Nadi failed to register a win and conceded 14 goals in three games.

The side also failed to score a single goal and finished at the bottom of the points table in their pool.

"I will not quit until and unless the association wants me out," he said.

"This is only our first year in the OFC competition and we have learnt a lot of lessons from it.

"Now the boys have tasted the difference between local and competitive games and they know what's required to match the top teams in the region.

"I will continue coaching despite our failure to win any OFC game. But again it's up to the association to determine my future with the club."

Swamy said his next assignment would be to help the side do well in this year's local competitions.

And should the team secure a spot again in next year's OFC Champion League, the Nadi school teacher is optimistic of an improved performance.

"Our aim is to maintain our spot in the O'League and I am confident the team will do better if we are eligible for next year's tournament.

"The boys lacked the experience needed in this top level competition and I believe we will be in a good position next year."
