REWA Football Association media liaison officer Yogeshwar Singh said former coach Marika Rodu was welcome to join the team as player.
Rodu, who has guided the Delta Tigers to many famous victories, resigned from his post early this week.
He said he was not happy with the decision making and the running of the association.
"I'm not happy with decision making by executives in the axing of Kelepi Qaqa, I was not even informed, I only learnt about it from The Fiji Times newspaper last week," Rodu said.
"Players' welfare has been compromised. Players' welfare has been pushed on to their respective clubs to bear the cost whereas the parent body (Rewa FA) just sits and relax and make use of these players week in, week out basis."
Singh said former Fiji under-17 coach Rizwan Ali was mentoring the side.
He said they were trying to rope in the services of former Delta Tigers coach Manoj Kumar.
Singh said they paid their players well. He said each player received $50 as training allowance and $60 for winning the game.
Singh added a draw would earn each player $30 and players, who turned to training only two-days or less a week were not paid.
Apart from the players, Singh said Rodu was paid $100 weekly plus $60, if he played a match for Rewa (and won).
He also said a businessman paid Rodu $50 weekly apart from the pay he received from the association.
"Apart from that we transport players as far as Suva, Verata, Rewa Delta and Navuso which almost costs us $300 daily. So it's a very costly exercise for us," Singh said.
"Qaqa was disciplined and dropped for the national league match only and he was not excluded from the Fiji FACT squad."
