Rajesh Patel will lead the Fiji Football Association for another four years.
This after he won the election for President at the Fiji FA Annual Congress last night in Ba.
Patel defeated the lone contestant Shalendra Prasad by a vote count of 37 to 16.
Patel says he will continue developing the sport in the nation.
“I am really happy today that the current management have been retained. I thank the districts for their continued support towards us and assure them that Fiji Football will look after them and also those districts who voted against me, I assure them that they will be given equal support from the Association. We will continue with the development works around the country and try our utmost best to take the nation to another level.”
Tarunesh Reddy and Yogeshwar Singh also retained their vice president’s seats while Edwin Chand also won his vice president’s post unopposed.
Meanwhile, a new national coach will be announced tomorrow.
Current coach, Carlos Buzetti’s term expires at the end of next month.
