-Says football awakening never happened under Klass

Former Guyana Football League (GFL) Vice President Wayne Forde said that the current discourse that has awakened within the football fraternity can only be good for the sport as it was severely lacking during the Colin Klass era.

Speaking in an exclusive interview, Forde said:”I want to commend the entire football family for the awakening that has occurred in football. The level of activism we are seeing right now can only be good for the sport.

“Despite we might not agree with all the people, the fact that everyone is now coming forward and voicing their dissatisfaction with the manner in which football is being administered at the national and sub-association level, we must acknowledge that this level of openness and frank dialogue was absent during the Colin Klass era.
