Former Reggae Girlz coach Vin Blaine has charged that the women’s national program is heavily beholden to an outside benefactor.
The man who has kept the Reggae Girlz in the hunt for a berth in the upcoming World Cup was forced to say goodbye after just six months in charge of the national team.
His decision came against the backdrop of a lot of squabbling among members of the national team, 19 of whom had sent and signed a letter to the JFF questioning the coach’s training methods.
Blaine, however, continues to believe the players were influenced by external forces who will continue to hold plenty of sway with both a large swath of the team’s senior players and the federation itself.
Blain said in a press interview that he believes that the national program is being held hostage to outside interest.
“That’s from my perspective and that’s one of the reasons I decided to part ways and let them have the program. Hopefully, I wish them all the best. I hold no ill will towards anyone,” he said.
“It’s my country but it’s just that at this moment I have decided that this is what is best for me and the program.”
The JFF is now in search of a new head coach, ahead of the World Cup qualifiers in July.
