A video has emerged on social media, showing assistant coach of TT’s National football team, Kelvin Jack, throwing some words for player Gary Griffith III.
The video was allegedly recorded by the young Griffith himself, and Jack is seen telling him, “I don’t care who you are going and tell because your family does not have more influence than me in Trinidad football.”
The incident, according to wired868, occurred mere hours before TT’s disappointing World Cup qualifying match against The Bahamas on Saturday 5 June.
Wired868 claims that Jack, the 45-year-old 2006 World Cup goalkeeper and former Scotland Premier League player, criticised Griffith III—the son of Commissioner of Police Gary Griffith—on Saturday morning for his behaviour the previous night when the player refused to attend a team bonding exercise in Nassau.
Griffith III, is said to have reacted angrily to the admonition and began taping the exchange, which has now been released.
The matter is now before the FIFA-appointed Normalisation Committee.
