Ali appointed national assistant coach

By Sunil Sharma 

Fiji U23 and Lautoka coach Imdad Ali has been appointed the new national team assistant coach.

Ali was appointed based on his record at the recent OFC U23 Olympic Qualifiers where Fiji lost 1-0 in the final match to New Zealand.

National team director and Fiji FA vice president Tarunesh Reddy confirmed the appointment to FijiLive and said Ali will work closely with national coaching director Juan Carlos Buzzetti.

"Imdad and Carlos will work together to prepare the Fiji team to the Oceania Nations Cup which will also act as qualifier for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil."

"He is a coach with a proven record and we are happy to appoint him."

Meanwhile, the national squad for the Nations Cup which will be held in Honiara, Solomon Islands in June will be announced on Monday.
