“I write again in regard to the outstanding salary and car allowance payments. I’ve been emailing and calling you daily, with little or no response.
“This is unprofessional and unacceptable at best…”
The following email was sent by Trinidad and Tobago National Under-20 Team coach Russell Latapy to Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) president David John-Williams on 8 June 2018:
Good Morning David,
I write again in regard to the outstanding salary and car allowance payments. I’ve been emailing and calling you daily, with little or no response.
This is unprofessional and unacceptable at best, as you have not acknowledged any communications regarding team matters, nor outstanding salaries and allowances. On the rare occasion you have accepted my call, it is brief with the promise to return the call to address my outstanding payments and matters pertaining to my team, which to date I still await.
This has been occurring before your unfortunate incident, and now you have left me with little recourse, but to copy the Technical Director, General Secretary and Board members in this communication to you.
I await your feedback as it relates to my team members and myself.
Editor’s Note: Wired868 contacted TTFA president David John-Williams for response to Russell Latapy’s letter. We also asked for details on how many technical staff members are owed by the TTFA at present, the reason for the financial issues and how the local football body plans to address them.
Up to the time of publication, we had not received a response.
