Waite said that he is pleased to get a coaching role in the national program. He is excited about the idea of leading the U20 squad into the qualifiers. He told journalists that he will be working towards winning all qualifier games. However, he knows that the task won’t be easy.
Many journalists have reported that there are rumours that john wall was released because of his close relationship with Craig Butler. Butler has been at loggerheads with the current leaders of the JFF. Butler has been claiming the JFF has been blocking his players from playing for the Reggae Boyz teams.
Jamaican fans have been on Butler’s side because he is known for developing famous players like Aston Villa’s Leon Bailey and Chelsea’s Dujuan Richards.
