Speaking to The Daily News Sports yesterday, Omar Jarsey alias Waterman, a Gambia and San Jose Earthquake player said, Gambia Football Association (GFA) lacks the money to develop Gambian football.
“Football is all about money for development and we see that the GFA is always crying for money, which is an obstacle to Gambian football,” he said
“If we need something in football, we must do something monetarily for Gambian football to develop,” Jassey Said.
“Monetarily to be honest, The Gambia football is not doing well and GFA needs the right people to help resolve the money problem they are facing,” Jassey added.
Speaking about his exclusion in the 17th edition of Orange CAF which took place in Johannesburg, South Africa earlier this year, Jassey said he was disappointed because he came all the way from United State to help the team and surprisingly he was dumped.
“Though I was just from injury, but I would have been fit before the tournament and that was why my team [San Jose] left me to come and join the Gambia U-20 team. Am not saying the coach Lamin Sarr is good or bad, but he did not drop me in the right way.”
When asked whether he will play for the Gambia again, Jassey said he focusing on his team [San Jose], which is more of an important to him now than anything else, as he is fighting for a place in the starting eleven.
He then felt sorry for Gambian players as, he said, the country is not much known to the world in football.
