THE inclusion of veteran mentor Yogendra Dutt in the Fiji Football coaching panel was welcomed by the national coaching director Juan Carlos Buzzetti.

Dutt, the former Ba coach, was appointed to the national coaching panel earlier this week.

The schoolteacher will be helping Kamal Swamy with the Fiji under-17 side preparing for the Oceania Football Confederation Championship.

Buzzetti said a mentor of Dutt's calibre was needed in the development of the national teams.

Dutt, who is also the former Fiji coach, has guided Ba to a number of wins.

"He is a good coach and to have someone like him with so much of football knowledge is a plus for us," Buzzetti said.

"He will be helping with the U17 team and we are looking forward to working with him."

Buzzetti said they planned to give opportunity to more local coaches who had proven record in the domestic competition and hold FIFA coaching certificate.

"This is our plan as we work on not only developing the players but coaches as well."
