Vanuatu Referees must work hard now, says Massimo

Vanuatu Referees must work hard now, says Massimo

FIFA MA Referee Course officially opens yesterday in Port Vila at the
academy by the Vanuatu Football President Lambert Maltock yesterday
morning. The course is conducted by the three Referee Instructors of
FIFA working in Oceania Football Confederation.

Massimo Raveino who is the Referee Development Officer of FIFA in OFC
and also the man behind the referee's organization in OFC asked all
referees in Vanuatu to think seriously about refereeing.

He said, "Before Vanuatu referees officiated in the World Cup,
Confederation Cup, Under 17 World Cup, Under 20 World Cup and Olympics
Games but now the refereeing in Vanuatu is going down and other
Pacific Islands are coming up."

"Why, because you Referees are not serious." Some of you are here
because you like travelling to other countries but I want to remind
you all that our main purpose is to serve Vanuatu Football

"We are here to serve Vanuatu Football Federation and the referees who
are coming behind us" We need to work as a team to assist VFF
President and his executive to develop Football in all members
associations in Vanuatu. "He concluded.

Massimo Raveino will be flying back to Auckland with VFF President
Lambert Maltock on Wednesday to attend the OFC executive meeting in
Tonga this weekend and Neil Poloso and Kader Touati will continue with
the course until Saturday.
