TT Coach points out hypocrisy by local sports fans

Head coach of the Trinidad and Tobago Football Team, Angus Eve is lamenting the lack of support for local athletes including the football team.

He cited the treatment of national athletes after the Olympics compared to how they were praised and lauded after the Commonwealth games noting that Trinbagonians only support their sporting personnel when they are winning.

Eve made the comment while speaking this morning on Power 102 Digital’s Power Breakfast Show.

Suggesting that the team is going through a rebuild, Eve called on Trinbagonians to show their support.

The players are preparing for an upcoming friendly pre-World Cup tournament in Thailand.

Trinidad and Tobago Senior Men’s Team will join host nation Thailand at the King’ Cup 2022 in Chiang Mai province, from September 22-25.

This will be T&T’s third visit to Thailand for international friendlies, having visited in 2004 and 2018, losing to the hosts 3-2 and 1-0 respectively.

The King’s Cup 2022 has confirmed three other teams taking part in the competition including hosts Thailand, Malaysia and Tajikistan.

The matches will be played on September 22nd and 25th, within the FIFA Window and a draw will take place to determine the fixtures.

The Senior Men’s Team preparations for these matches are believed to be progressing with Eve expected to announce a Final Squad to travel to Chiang Mai in the coming weeks.

The team is set to participate in a friendly tournament next month alongside Thailand, Malaysia and Tajikistan.
