Serritslev disappointed with districts

National Coach Flemming Serritslev is disappointed with some districts who gave U19 players very little game time in the Digicel Premier League and the Fiji FACT.
Serritslev said the districts are not following the rule set by the Fiji Football Association and the whole purpose is defeated when players ate not given the exposure and game time they deserve.
"We actually feel we've had the best possibilities for selecting a good Under 19 squad that has ever been done here in Fiji."
"One of the reasons is of course that it's now compulsory for the district teams for the senior teams to have the two players in their squad from where one has to be in the starting line-up."
"I have to say that we are not we're not quite happy with the way this rule is being run by many of the districts."
"We have unfortunately seen young players playing only six or seven or 15 minutes where we expected that the clubs would take part in the development of players here in Fiji but by substituting them after a very short time, it has nothing to do with supporting the talent development here in Fiji."
"So, somehow we will have to change this rule so that we can have more young players to play more means that it has been the case until now," he explained.
