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.
