Nepal Coach Graham Roberts Raises Serious Concern Over Overage Issue
Sep 15, 2011 09:58:08 AM

Nepal National team head coach, Graham Roberts has raised serious concern over the over age issue in on-going AFC U-16 Group D Qualifiers.

Roberts claimed Syrian players need thorough examination and should be taken action against them immediately if they are found guilty.

“We have heard one Syrian player was found over aged after MRI screening”, Roberts said, “If it is true, there is no sense of continuing the tournament with Syria. The action should be taken immediately against them. I know AFC will study the matter and take action after two or three months later which is too late”.

“There is no development in age football if you field over aged players”, Roberts added, “Those who are fielding over aged players, they are cheating football. Football game has a motto – Fair Play is our game. We need to play the game fair”.

However, the official statement is yet to come on the over aged player used by Syrian team. We can’t say “officially” unless AFC gives its official statement.
