    Acting Pro League Chairman and Central FC managing director Brent Sancho is upset over what he calls a thoughtless decision for bring forward T&T’s friendly against Anguilla to this Sunday instead of Monday.

    Sancho’s gripe is that the weekend is already a busy for club football with First Citizens Cup matches being played on Friday (today), Saturday and Sunday.

    He says because the Anguilla game was carded for Monday, clubs had made plans to allow players to attend national team training while playing their national players over the weekend.

    Sancho says, “Clubs would want a full roster for the FCB (First Citizens Cup) and the recovery time for players was dangerously short as it was. So to bring the game forward is nothing but crazy.”

    The national team will also travel to face Ecuador in another friendly on November 14th before facing Honduras in their closing CONCACAF Nations League qualifier on November 17th.

    Sancho assures that a formal letter of complaint will be sent to TTFA boss David John Williams.
