Former mentor returns to assist FACT champs

Former Coach Lambert Sarju has rejoined Lautoka for this week’s Digicel Fiji FACT at Subrail Park in Lautoka.

Sarju has been drafted into the coaching panel of the Blues as they will look to defend their title.

He will work closely with Shivam Raj who has been promoted as the head coach of the  FLICK Hygiene sponsored side.

This change in coaching roles was confirmed to FijiLive by Lautoka FA President Shalendra Prasad earlier today.

Raj, who has served as the assistant coach since 2023 will step up sand take charge.

Initially, Sarju was nominated to lead as the head coach, but due to not possessing the required C License, his position was adjusted to that of technical advisor.

Prasad explained the selection process, saying that although there were many potential candidates for the head coach position, there were certain aspects that ultimately did not align with the association’s expectations.

Lautoka will open its campaign against Ba at 4.30pm on Friday.
