President of the TTFA writes to FIFIA on Jack Warner

The Trinidad and Tobago Football Association has written to FIFA Secretary General Fatma Samoura on the matter addressed. The letter was submitted on Thursday November 28th, 2019. Please see below.

“Dear Madame General Secretary and Friend

Greetings from the newly elected officers of the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association, it is with the greatest concern as the newly elected President of the TTFA, I write to communicate to FIFA our rejection of claims being made within Trinidad and Tobago and as well in the International press that the new TTFA administration has come into office with the support of former FIFA vice president Austin Jack Warner.

This narrative was spread by parties unknown prior to the TTFA elections of Sunday 24, November 2019, and has grown in intensity since that date. This rumor has gained traction in major part due to the unsolicited support and comments of the former FIFA vice president in the Trinidad and Tobago media.

On behalf of the officers of the TTFA and myself I assure you, the president and members of FIFA, that there is not, and never will be a connection between the former FIFA vice president going forward from Sunday 24, November 2019.”
