Platini willing to help BFA

Social Share

The president of the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) arrived in Barbados yesterday to get a first-hand look at local facilities as well as to identify areas which require greater technical assistance.
Arriving almost 35 minutes ahead of his 4:45 p.m. schedule yesterday, French football legend Michel Platini was met at the IAM Jet Centre by Minister of Sport Stephen Lashley, acting Director of Sport Neil Murrell, sports development officer Stephen Rowe, president of the Barbados Football Association, Randy Harris and vice-president Captain Charles Walcott.
In a light-hearted discussion with Harris, Platini asked the president to tell him of some of the things which  football needs as he is to meet with Prime Minister Freundel Stuart today at 2:30 p.m. and he would convey the BFA’s concerns.
Platini suggested that it was critical to help the Caribbean with finance but it was even more important to see what was being done with the finance.
He is expected to tour the National Stadium as well as the FIFA facility at Wildey today before flying out. (KB)
