Former Fiji Football Asso­ciation and FIFA referee Prakash Chandra will be assisting referees during the 2018 Courts Inter-District Champion­ship at ANZ Stadium in Suva.

Chandra said he was here to as­sist Fiji Football referees director Rakesh Varman to improve their performance.

“I will be giving a pep talk to the referees before their matches and i’m sure that will bring in confi­dence, “said Chandra.

Chandra, who is the California Football Association referees board chairman said Fijian refer­ees have been doing well.

“I was here last year during the Courts IDC and the referees did well but there needs to be a few im­provements, “he said

‘There have been lots of changes in the laws of the game and that will be my key messages to the ref­erees.

He urged fans not to criticise ref­erees as they were also human.

“The fans are very quick to criti­cise referees but they are more ed­ucated on the laws of the game and they are the better ones to make decisions, “Chandra said.

Fiji Football referees director Rakesh Varman said it was great to have someone to boost the referees.

“It is good to have someone with vast experience to boost the refer­ees during the tournaments and I welcome him to Fiji, ”Varman said.
