JK steps down as Nadi president

By Sunil Sharma

Jitendra Kumar has stepped down from his post as Nadi Football Association president to continue as a Fiji FA vice president.

This is in line with Fiji FA's Board of Control December ruling to abolish dual role executive leadership in domestic soccer.

Kumar joined the Nadi soccer fraternity in 1994 and took over as in 2004 from Navneeda Goundar.

“The decision is my own and after serving Nadi for so long, now I want to serve all the districts through the parent body,” Kumar told FijiLive.

“Although I won’t lead Nadi soccer, I will also render my support to them.”
 
Nadi FA endorsed vice president and Nadi businessman Tarun Patel as the acting president until the Nadi FA Council appoints Kumar’s replacement.

Patel is president of Namaka soccer club and took up a VP’s post with Nadi FA last year.

“Indeed it is not an easy task and I would like to thank the Nadi soccer executives for having faith in me,” he said.

Patel said the council meeting will be called before the Battle of Giants tournament next month.
