By Iva Wharton

Two days have elapsed and the Guyana Football Federation (GFF) is yet to comment on the statement released by Golden Jaguar’s Captain, Chris Nurse accusing two senior officials of the federation of being responsible for the stagnation of the sport among other things.

This newspaper for the past two days have been trying to get a comment from GFF president Franklin Wilson or General Secretary, Noel Adonis on the matter.

Wilson informed Stabroek Sport via telephone that the federation was addressing the matter and would release a statement yesterday while

Adonis, when contacted yesterday said the GFF would be releasing a statement soon.

Nurse on Sunday, released what could be termed a damning statement in which he accused two paid officials of the GFF of being incompetent which has resulted in some members of the national team losing their jobs.

He also accused the pair of attempting to stagnate the development of the sport among other things and called on the two officials to either resign or be removed from office.
