Rewa interim coach Nigel Khan has quit after the 6-1 drubbing by Nadi in the Vodafone Premier League match yesterday.

“You have seen how bad the senior boys played today,” Khan said at Prince Charles Park.

“This kind of performance is pathetic.

“Senior boys have no heart and if they perform this way then they won’t find their name in the team.

“It is heartbreaking and this is my last game. Rewa has to choose either the coach or the players.”

National and Nadi striker Rusiate Matererega scored four goals in the win.

This has put Nadi into second spot on the standing with six points from two wins behind leaders’ Ba (7).
The Delta Tigers are in the bottom spot with three points from four outings this season.
