George LasCaris, one of Barbados’ longest-serving football administrators, is crying foul and claiming unfair play.
And LasCaris is adamant he won’t be bullied by the Barbados Football Association’s (BFA) Somalia-born technical director Ahmed Mohamed.
LasCaris, in a press statement sent to The NATION, said Mohamed threatened young footballers with exclusion from the national team if they participated in his annual Barbados Cup youth tournament.
The charge, which was rejected by Mohamed, comes on the eve of the 32nd edition of the Barbados Cup which kicks off on Sunday with over 50 youth teams participating in four age categories instead of the usual five.
For the first time in three decades, there will be no Under-19 competition and LasCaris, a former BFA president and national footballer, is laying the blame at Mohamed’s boots.
