Corneal apologises to coach Lawrence

Saturday, October 21, 2017
T&T head football coach Dennis Lawrence.

Dear Editor,

My recent column published in T&T Guardian on Friday, October 20, 2017, which made reference to your qualification to coach our national team which was written in chapter six, was not meant to degrade your certification which you have earned during your stint in the coaching profession.

I will agree that, in hindsight, the comment may have challenged your ability to handle our national team, which was really intended to imply your inexperience to coach a national team before this assignment. The comment was NOT intended to degrade you or your professional qualification in any way whatsoever, therefore I apologise profusely to you and anyone who may have read the article.

As they may further have read in the same article, it was clear that I am completely in favour of you carrying on the job from the present position from which the national squad will approach the next major tournament. I also wish to extend my apologies to your employers.

Again, my sincerest apologies.


Alvin Corneal

Former National Coach
