The Dreketi team football team will have a new coach during the Inkk Mobile Battle of the Giants tournament.

It has been confirmed that they have taken in their former coach Johan Leewai who takes over from Arthur Simmons.

Leewai had coached Labasa during the Vodafone Fiji FACT tournament where they reached the semifinal.

Dreketi Football Association manager Roneel Ram said Leewai began training the players early this week.

“Simmons has resigned because of work commitments,” he said.

“We are indeed grateful for all that he has done for our team. Leewai is not a new coach to the team and what I can say that we are happy that he  has returned, Our focus now is to regroup and prepare for the B.O.G. “Our aim is to win all the pool games and qualify for the semi-final.”

The Dreketi side are in Pool A where they face defending champions Rewa, Suva and Fiji FACT champions Nadi. The tournament pool matches will be held at Ratu Cakobau Park, Nausori from August 26-28. The venue of the semi-final and final will be decided later.
