THE Fiji National Sports Commission has officially taken over the responsibility of paying for the salary cap of national football coach Juan Carlos Buzzetti.

Commission chairman Peter Mazey and Fiji Football Association chief executive Bob Kumar signed the documents yesterday.

Mazey said the move would allow Fiji FA to concentrate on development work and its minor teams.

"The Commission will now for the next three years assist the Fiji FA with salary cap and contract of Carlos which includes accommodation and vehicles," he said.

"The total amount is somewhere between $150,000 and $200,000 and we are back dating the pay to January 1 so whatever the Fiji FA paid from then till now, we are refunding them."

Kumar said the financial assistance by the Commission would be put to good use.

"We can divert the funds that we used to pay Carlos with to other needy areas," he said.

"We have already started concentrating on the U14 girls and boys team and are preparing for the Oceania U17 competition."
