I READ in the Borneo Bulletin (Weekend) of November 15, 2014 regarding the awarding of C Class certificates to new coaches produced by the National Football Association of Brunei Darussalam (NFABD) with cooperation from Asian Football Confederation (AFC).
I wonder why we need to have so many coaches when NFABD has no national team of its own.
Although we have a national DST League since 2012 which has more than 20 teams of 30 players (600), it is still unable to help NFABD form a national team.
The Suzuki Cup 2014 showed our situation and standing as our so-called national team failed to register any wins. We were even below Timor Leste.
In the DST FA Cup 2014, NFABD’s Under-17 team was eliminated and exited early.
Where are the NFABD coaches with B and C certificates? Why didn’t they help train the Under-17 team? Do not waste time and money just for the sake of producing coaches, please use the money from FIFA wisely to develop players, in particular a national team owned by NFABD, which is generally the norm of all national football associations.
Please do something before it is too late. The Suzuki Cup qualifying is just 24 months away. Start forming and training our very own national team.
