Mustapha Raji, football advocate has called on the Ministry of Youth and Sports (MYS) and the Liberia Football Association (LFA) to revisit the Social Corporate Agreement (SCA).

The SCA gives the LFA an exclusive right to manage the national football teams, including financial and technical assistance; recruitment and payment of technical staff.

The LISCR president said the re-examination of the SCA is to return the statutory right to the MYS to supervise the LFA.

Raji stated that the LFA would present a realistic football development to the MYS for appraisal.

Meanwhile, Raji said the LFA’s sole management of the national teams is responsible for the teams’ failure.

On the insignificant US$500,000 for the national team, Raji said financial experts knew before hand that it was impossible to have a team participate with such amount but said the LFA forcibly registered the team to participate in the African Nations Cup, losing to Lesotho.

“What else did we expect to get? If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail and that’s our advice that was not considered,” he said.

The SCA was signed between LFA’s Musa Bility and former Youth and Sports Minister Etmonia David Tarpeh in 2010.
