Former national team goalkeeper, Simione Tamanisau has sounded his desire to join the ‘Men in Black’, Ba upon the completion of peacekeeping mission in March.
Speaking to SUNsports from Liberia in West Africa, the member of the Fiji Police Force said he would not pass on the opportunity to don the black jersey.
When told of the swirling rumour linking him to Ba, Tamanisau vehemently denied any contact made but added he would love to dress up for Ba.
“To be very honest I still owe service to my country and the people of Liberia,” he said.
“I will return home to my family, spend quality time and then see what the future holds.
“If given the opportunity I would love to play for Ba, a champion district.”
The former double district, Rewa and Lautoka net minder says he would play out the OFC Champions League if that works for Ba Football Association.
“I see myself doing the O-League. I will have to consider all my options for the long haul,” Tamanisau quipped.
A reliable source to SUNsports confirmed yesterday that following Jone Ralulu’s departure to Yoogali Football Club in New South Wales, Australia, Ba has approached Nadi goalkeeper Beniaminio Mateniqara who snubbed the offer and decided to stay on with the jetsetters.
Tamanisau started his football career at age of 19 with his biggest break representing the Fiji national side at the 2003 Pacific Games which Fiji won 2-0 over New Caledonia at the ANZ Stadium in Suva.
