FORMER national and Nadroga football rep, Mesulame Titifanua will be buried at his village in Voua, Nadroga on Saturday.

Titifanua, 47, died last weekend after a short illness.

He played for Nadroga and Fiji in the early 1990s.

His former teammate Kame Tuilawaki said Titifanua was a skilful player during his playing days.

"We played together for Nadroga in 1988 when Nadroga won the Champion Versus Champion tournament and a year later we won the Inter-District Championship," Tuilawaki said.

"That was Nadroga's era where we had so many ace players like Radike Nawalu, Abraham Watkins, Ilikimi Tulalevu, Anirudh Singh and a few others including Mesu and our president is the current Fiji Football CEO.

"Mesu was a no-nonsense player both for Nadroga and Fiji and he always played from his heart.

"Opposite strikers would usually fear him because he was a very aggressive player, but always played within the rules. Off the field, he was a gentleman. He will be missed by his former teammates, both for Nadro and Fiji."
