National Training Centre to undergo transformation

first_imgGuyana Football Federation (GFF) President Wayne Forde said that the National Training Centre at Providence will undergo a transformation to be converted into a dormitory which will aid in preparation of the respective national programmes. This was disclosed at the Pegasus Hotel in Kingston following the official signing of the developmental MoU with the Denmark Football Association.Speaking to media operatives Forde said, “The next phase of work at Providence will be the conversion of the building into dorms, we submitted the applications already to the FIFA Development Department, we are awaiting the approval and once that is done we are optimistic that we will have the approval before 2019 and you will see an aggressive construction programme take place which will see that building converted into a dorm.”Howard Mc Intosh He added, “The priority now is to convert the building into a functioning dorm with a kitchen, washroom and shower and all of that. We are putting in seating capacity, temporary portable seating capacity of  1000 which will subsequently move when we finalize the design for other MA grounds.  “I would say by the end of the first quarter of 2020 we should have the venue to the state which we would like to describe as functional to host competitions there.”The facility, which was official commissioned  May 13th 2019, is being constructed in two phases.  The first phase of the project was the installation of the artificial turf. The second phase will witness infrastructure such as stands, lights, beach, Futsal training pitches, mini pitches and an administrative centre for the headquarters of the GFF being erected. Former head of the GFF Normalization Committee, Clinton Urling, had brokered an agreement between the GFF and the Eccles/Ramsburg Neighbourhood Democratic Council (NDC) for the location and was granted a 30-year lease for the land.  Meanwhile Howard McIntosh, CONCACAF Senior Project Manager, disclosed that the confederation is in the process of initiating several projects that will be beneficial to the region, especially the emerging nations within the Caribbean. He revealed, “The work has already started in terms of putting in place the way that many of the countries like Guyana will benefit. FIFA has already put an expensive programme in place through the FIFA Forward Programme and CONCACAF has put a programme in place through the One CONCACAF programme.“What is going to happen over the next couple of months will see strategic planning there for 2030 which will be taking you past the World Cup”, adding, “It clearly sets out all the plans CONCACAF has in relation to the World Cup and beyond. It’s not about going up to the World Cup it’s what takes place beyond and I cans say with confidence everyone will be happy in terms of many of the things that will be implemented for countries like Guyana and the rest of the region.”last_img read more

Balotelli MUST step up training efforts, insists Liverpool boss Rodgers

first_img Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli 1 Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has told striker Mario Balotelli he must step up his efforts in training, or risk not being picked for the Reds first-team.The £16million summer signing did not make the 18-man matchday squad for saturday’s goalless FA Cup fourth round draw at home to Bolton, despite being fit after recovering from illness.Balotelli has struggled to settle since arriving at Anfield and hasn’t started a game since the 2-1 Premier League defeat to Chelsea in November.And Rodgers said he spent an hour on Friday telling the Italy international exactly what he had to do in order to be considered.“I am judging it every day in training – Mario is exactly the same as every other player, there is no special treatment for anyone,” said the Reds boss.“Fabio Borini and Rickie Lambert are working tirelessly in training and when they go on they have contributed and young Jordan Rossiter, on the bench today, has been brilliant in training and I have to judge it on that.“If you want to contribute you have to be at it every single day in training in order to be in the squad on match day.“We had an hour or so yesterday chatting and he understands where he is at.“He knows exactly what is required to be in this squad before he can be in the team.“It is difficult for him but he knows the level of what this team is at – you see the aggression in our pressing and if you can’t do that you are not going to be a part of what this team is trying to achieve.“He was fully understanding. He saw the level of performance against Chelsea [in Tuesday’s Capital One Cup] and in fairness to him he actually said it would be a struggle for him in terms of how he would play the game because he is a box player really.“But there is much more asked of this team and he saw it clearly on the field the other night. I am confident he will respond well.”First choice striker, Daniel Sturridge, returns to training tomorrow having not featured for the Reds since August 31 because of a thigh injury, and Rodgers added the England man could make the squad for the League Cup semi-final second leg against Chelsea on Tuesday.“Now it is just about getting that condition with football fitness and game fitness,” said Rodgers.“We will see how he is for Tuesday but if he is not ready for Tuesday he will be back for sure against West Ham next weekend.”last_img read more
