The Trinidad and Tobago Football Association wishes to advise that there continues to be ongoing dialogue with Leo Beenhakker over his possible re-introduction to local football as a member of the National Team Coaching Staff.
The TTFA has noted reports in the local media but wishes to state that no deal has been finalized with the Dutchman who led Trinidad and Tobago to its first ever World Cup Finals in Germany in 2006.
“We are still having discussions with Mr Beenhakker. A deal is imminent but nothing is confirmed at this time and once an agreement has been reached, an official announcement will then be made on the subject at hand,” TTFA General Secretary Sheldon Phillips stated on Friday.
The members of the current National Senior Men’s Team staff including coaches Jamaal Shabazz, Hutson Charles and manager William Wallace met with Phillips and President Raymond Tim Kee on Wednesday over recent and forthcoming developments.
The Senior Team continues to train at the Ato Boldon Stadium and a training camp will be scheduled for later this month as the country prepares for its opening 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup encounter against El Salvador on July 8th in New Jersey.
