Coordinator of TTFA Programmes.

It means he will actually be doing someone else's job but that particular someone else is effectively clueless that that is the case or effectively innoculated from doing anything about it.

Decision pre-dates MNT technical staff change.

Wow. DJW introduced the man by saying if he don't get the job done on March 24th and 28th he will be looking for a next job

With respect to this comment, I think it might be fair to speculate Saintfiet is on possibly a very short term contract. Perhaps one that was uniquely appealing to a journeyman manager such as himself.

What is the long term plan of the TTFA beyond March? Who is lined up after that because clearly DJW's mind is already on the possibilities of failure. What will be the mandate of the next man to lead our flagship team at that point?

Gold Cup possibly would be on the horizon. Just some things to think about.

Gun talk!

This is all about saving money (and IMO incredibly shortsighted). Fits in with DJW's earlier statements about hiring a coach for a couple of games to see how he does before making a longer term decision. So if he doesn't get the results after the next two games in the Hex, he will be fired and replaced with an even cheaper (probably local, and maybe even SCF) option. Also, it sounds like he was either the cheapest option available and/or the only one willing to work under those restrictions and DJW is making sure he knows who's the boss by putting him on notice immediately and publicly.

Hopefully the media officers can get down on the ground with some good full length footage (minus the music---let us hear the vibe n sounds of the sessions)

Carolina resigned from the canadian national team in 2011

"Unexpectedly, she formally announced her resignation as the coach of the Canadian national women's team on Friday 22 July 2011 due to future budget disputes"


Oh boi...hopefully the past is the past and we can expect greater things from the women's program (fingers crossed)

He claimed Phillipe Troussier was the first choice but cost too much

Well at least he is being "honest" about why he picked the Belgian.

Because locals have failed and continue to fail, they get a boss coach who is a son of the soil and fire him for a nobody who has nothing to show....

And trust me there are ways, hence the reason David John has now given me a reason to study the constitution in great detail again..

If you support David as Palos just said, you should be ashamed of yourself ... you are indeed a wolf in sheeps clothing on this board and I thought you were one of the good ones...

Saintfiet and Morace appointed Head Coaches of T&T Men and Women Senior Teams.
TTFA Media.


The Trinidad and Tobago Football Association is today pleased to announce two major appointments for its Men and Women Senior National Teams.

The TTFA welcomes to the organisation, Ms. Carolina Morace who has been appointed as Head Coach for our Womenís National Senior Team and Director of Womenís Football and Mr. Tom Saintfiet who will take up the position of Head Coach of our Menís National Senior Team.

These and other announcements were made at a Press Conference hosted by TTFA at the Courtyard Marriott in Port of Spain.

Morace, age 52, served as  Head Coach of Canadaís Senior Womenís team from 2009-2011. She led Canada to winners row at the 2010 CONCACAF Womenís Gold Cup and qualification to the 2011 FIFA Womenís World Cup. She was also Head Coach of the Italian National Senior and Under 19 Womenís Team in 2000-2005. She became the first woman to ever coach a Menís Professional Team Ė AS Viterbase of Italy in 1999.

Morace played for the Italy Senior Womenís Team between 1978-1997, scoring 105 goals in 153 appearances, making her debut at age 14. She set a record for both men and women, being the first and only player to score four goals in a single match at Wembley Stadium. She was also the first player to score a hattrick at a FIFA Womenís World Cup in 1991 and became the first woman to be inducted into the Italian Football Hall of Fame.

Morace holds a UEFA Pro License and is a FIFA Instructor. She is currently a FIFA World Ambassador for Womenís football and is also a lawyer and television football commentator.

Saintfiet, age 43, is from Belgium and was a player between 1983 and 1997 before going onto become the youngest manager (head coach) in Belgian Football at the age of 24. He is the former head coach of Finnish Premier League club RoPS Rovaniemi. At the international level for country, he is the former Head Coach of Namibia, Zimbabwe, Ethiopia, Yemen, Malawi, Togo and Bangladesh. He is also a former Technical Director of the Nigerian Football Association.

Saintfiet also coached the Qatar Under 17 Menís Team to third place in the AFC Asian Championships and qualified Qatar for the FIFA Under 17 World Cup in 2004.

He holds a UEFA Pro License and has a Bachelor in Sports and Business Psychology. He speaks English, French, Dutch and German with basic knowledge of Arabic, Afrikaans, Faeroes and Spanish.

You can find more information about Saintfiet and Morace in the attached CVs.

There were other announcements made at the Press Conference today.  Justin Latapy-George was announced as the new General Secretary of the FA by President John-Williams who also disclosed that Jamaal Shabazz has taken up the position of Coordinator of Technical Programs and Technical Adviser for a three-year period. Further updates will continue be made on this website.

Instructive that the women's appointment took precedence over the men's, even though the Men are heavily involved in the final stages of World Cup qualifying and the women in essence doing f**k all right now.

I wonder if Morace really know what she get herself into?

Contro....Is not just football the "locals" failing at. Is basically every aspect of life in Trinidad. Hence the need for "who you know" and "links" in order to get things in sweet tnt. All of that just to protect the mediocrity that everyone know that they encourage but happy to benefit from. Even Angostura failing and in bobol.

All i care about is football now brother.. to hell with the rest of things home, cricket is another rubbish situation, so I done watching that long time.. track and field going nowhere...

All that money the pnm have now and they running their bobol as well, that new gas find and you are not hearing a peep and football not getting any money to support it.. I'm glad because David john should get nothing but he could be pretending he getting nothing and in cahoots with the govt

I don't trust any of them... Hart come and start doing well, they start undermining him, strike almost happen, kerron get shot, let people stay there and feel things was just coincidence, that logic or lack thereof is for fools
