“J&K Football Association (JKFA) is busy in organizing the seminars and events on synthetic turf and is not paying its attention towards the ‘deteriorating’ condition of majority of city football fields. They have left these fields to the authorities and are hiding from discharging their prime duty of working for development of the game that includes fields as well,” the statements reads.
The association has also lashed out at “some qualified coaches including Sajid Yousuf Dar, Manzoor Dar and Hilal Ahmed Rather of the valley for their lack of contribution to the field of football.”
“These so called high qualified coaches flaunt their certificates and claim that they are the only qualified coaches. However, when we see their contribution on the field, it is zero. They have never worked at ground level and only want high posts for themselves on the basis of these certificates”, it alleged. “These ‘so called high qualified coaches’ flaunt their certificates and claim that they are the only qualified coaches.
