THE TRINIDAD and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) president David John-Williams is staying mum on the issue concerning the proposed legal action to be taken against the local governing body for football by ex-national youth team coach and technical director Anton Corneal.

On Sunday, it was reported that Corneal plans to sue the TTFA to outstanding salaries during his time as Under-17 and Under- 20 coach, as well as technical director, from 2004-2014.

Contacted for a response on Monday, John-Williams said, “I don’t want to make any comment on that you know. What has been reported in the papers I don’t want to make any comment on that.” Told that Corneal was not taking action against any individual as in the Wim Rijsbergen vs (ex-TTFF president) Oliver Camps matter but the TTFA body itself, John-Williams reinforced his earlier response.

“I have absolutely no comment to make on the matter at this time. I haven’t seen anything else other than what has been reported in the press.

I can’t comment on it.” Upon taking over as TT FA president in November 2015, John-Williams promised to deal assiduously with the lingering debt incurred by the local governing body.

“Nothing new, we’re just working,” was all he had to say on that issue..
