Football Administrator Rodney Michael Slams SLFA

Mighty Blackpool team Manager Rodney Michael has slammed the Sierra Leone Football Association (SLFA) for its lack of transparency and honesty in the administration of football in the country.

Michael said that the SLFA has no proper development strategy for growing the game, especially for the senior national team, Leone Stars.

He also criticized the FA's appointment of coaches for the national team, saying that due diligence was not done in the case of Mohamed Kallon, who was appointed as coach even though John Keister was handling his last match.

Michael also criticized the FA's handling of the case of Mohamed Kallon, who was banned from football activities by the Confederation of African Football (CAF) for disciplinary issues.

Michael said that the FA was dishonest in putting forward a different reason for Kallon's ban.

Michael also criticized the FA's delegation lists for national team matches, saying that they are often ridiculous and that there is no better selection criteria for the national team.

He said that the FA should not plan for the national team as if it is a community boys team.

Michael concluded by saying that the mindset of the national team should be tailored on discipline and playing the game, and not having distractions around.
