Nadi Football team has signed an overseas player Chris Jerad to assist the side in preparation for the Oceania champions League trophy.

Head coach Kamal Swamy confirmed Jerad will be joining the side in December.

The team arrived from Auckland yesterday following their victory in the 2015 Pacific Cup championship. Now the men in green have shifted their focus eyeing the Champion versus Champion and the O League trophy.

Swamy said the win was the sheer hard work of teamwork, the players, officials, team managements and the executives.

“We know we failed in the inter district championship but we had set a goal to win the Pacific Cup so we trained accordingly and we got this victory,” Swamy said.

He said the competition was a tough one but nothing could have stopped them from bringing the trophy home.

“It was a well planned game but we played according to our structure but overall the competition was a tough one.

“Unfortunately there were some loopholes but i hope in the future the organisation but we hope the organisation in the future will improve and we will have a great tournament.”

He said there was still room for improvement for the players and they would be training according to give better performance.

“I think now the players now understand what football is and it is all because of teamwork, not only the players, it is also the executive, management who worked side by side, they all slept together and they cared for each other which has brought us this glory.”

For now the team we will be taking a break, before they resume training for the CVC and O League.
