Former national coach Russell Latapy has been paid a part of monies owed to him for services as a coach to the Trinidad and Tobago senior national team, but apparently there is still a long way to go.

In November, Sport Minister Darryl Smith had made a commitment to pay the former national player and coach half of US$1 million owed to him for his tenure as coach of the Soca Warriors between April 2009 and April 2011.

Latapy first filed action against the Football Association (TTFA) in October 2011, for salary owed as well as compensation for wrongful dismissal from the coaching position. In January of 2014, Latapy withdrew his lawsuit against the TTFA, after the two parties agreed to settle out of court.
