The Fiji Football Association would like to warn parents and children not to accept any lucrative offer from any individual regarding player recruitment overseas.

Fiji FA chief executive officer, Mohammed Yusuf, raised this issue after been informed by a concerned parent regarding a person going around and signing players.

“Let me tell everyone that there is no such recruitment for players overseas and if anyone comes with any sort of documents please do not accept,“ Yusuf warned.

“It’s disgusting to see such people going low to target kids and use Fiji FA’s name.”

Yusuf said such people would sweet talk and easily lure kids and parents to obtain money.

“We’ve been told that the person involved is telling parents that their kids have been selected to play overseas and will be paid $15,000 a year.   “Therefore they just need to give $250 for making the passport.”

Yusuf said parents should not entertain such people.

“Our staff members are at the grounds selecting players for development and we’ll inform parents but will not charge them,” he added.
