CFU President Puts Coaching Education on the Front Burner
Caribbean Football Union (CFU) President Randolph Harris has flagged the development of coaches as a priority if the organization is to realize its objective of having no fewer than two teams from the Caribbean qualify for the 2026 FIFA World Cup.
“Where we fall down most is in our coaching and coaching education departments, and we have to really look at having more of our people interested and qualified to take these young people on a journey of love in this game of football,” Harris said.
He was speaking, during a Videoconference titled National Youth Teams Management and Training Model—a tripartite initiative of the Argentina Football Association (AFA), the Argentinian Embassy in Bridgetown and the CFU.
The facilitators were Jerňnimo Aimar, Romŕn Manassero and Hermes Desio, who detailed the 10 training models the AFA uses, one of the messages from the facilitator was International exposure is the key for the region’s junior footballers to produce stellar performances and win major trophies.
“As president of the CFU, I want to be in a position where I can assist the CFU in ensuring that at least two of our countries qualify for the 2026 World Cup. The only way we can do that in the Caribbean is by further development and good planning,” President Harris said in his opening remarks.
He thanked the Ambassador to Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean Gustavo Pandiani for the eagerness to work with the CFU. “I can speak on behalf of everyone, to let you know how much this is appreciated,” President Harris added.
This was the advice given to CONCACAF member associations by the Argentina Football Association (AFA) during an online video conference for a National Youth Team’s Management and Training Model last week.
