Nalaubu trials for Czech club

Fiji and top Lautoka striker Sairusi Nalaubu will be joining FK Pardubice, a professional football club in the Czech Republic for trials in October.
 
This was revealed by the Deputy Commissioner of Police Itendra Nair during the Punjas Battle of the Giants Pool draws in Lautoka today.
 
Nair praised and acknowledged the lanky marksman for his impressive performance in the Fiji Police Force and on the football pitch.
 
"We are very proud as an organisation today Fiji Police Force that one of our customers has been recognised. And there's the potential to be able to break it free and break it through onto the global platform of something we are very proud of that."
 
"And that is our police constable Sairusi Nalaubu and he is going shortly. We have already released him on a leave without pay for three months. And he'll be leaving shortly for a Club named FK Pardubice, a professional football club in the Czech Republic."
 
"I'm pretty sure that along the line what Sairusi has done, and what Roy Krishna has already done is motivating our youth. And I'm pretty sure that after the announcement today, the youth of our country who are involved in playing soccer will look up to these players because they're motivating and creating dreams in our youths."
 
"That's the biggest thing that we take away. If constable Sairusi goes out there and does good on that particular platform, I’m pretty sure he'll be marketing and advertising our country. And the boys and girls who are following soccer and those who are seated here who might not be here. I know that certainly Sairusi and Roy Krishna are great motivators in that regard."
 
Meanwhile, Fiji Football Association chief executive Mohammed Yusuf added that while Nalaubu would be on leave without pay, Fiji FA will look after his family. 
 
The 26-year-old will attend the trial which begins on the 29th of October.
