Next coach again from overseas says Fiji FA

The Fiji Football Association will hire its next senior national coach from the European continent.
Current Fiji coach Christophe Gamel will step down at the end of the month as announced yesterday.
Fiji FA president Rajesh Patel says they will have to get someone who can carry on the work started by Gamel in changing the face of Fijian football.
“We will advertise, we need an overseas coach at the current moment from where he has left off. As I said we need a coach from Europe, which is better in that continent with the type of play and the philosophy and the game set up and the pattern he has been playing. That is something which will suit for the continuity and everything. If we go into any other continent and see the game and the pattern of play, everything is different from the coaching they do. And even to England or the English side, its a little bit kick and chase. Here it is much more on the ground and that’s why you see different game played by coaches from Europe continent than other coaches.”
Gamel will be assisting the Fiji Under-19 women’s and the men’s Olympic teams until the end of the month.
