Insurance cover needed: Ali

FSLGV  needs a comprehensive insurance: AliFSLGV needs a comprehensive insurance: AliFijian Soccer League of Greater Vancouver players need a comprehensive insurance cover to protect them from soccer related injuries.


The view is that of Ashad Ali, the former Ba and All-star midfielder of the 90s.

Ali says All-star defender, Subarmani Reddy’s injury calls for the league to seriously consider taking out sports accident coverage.

"Players need sport accident coverage for sanctioned practices and games", said Ali.

"This includes items such as dental, physiotherapy, accident reimbursement, accidental death, fracture indemnity, rehabilitation indemnity, tuition fees reimbursement, emergency transportation benefit, and eye glasses or contact lenses expense".

He said 'Babba' suffered serious injury while representing team Fiji in the Nations Cup last year and is a victim for misrepresentation.

Ali blew steam at the FSLGV for abandoning Reddy who went through surgeries to reconstruct his shattered cheek-bone and eye-socket. 

“Complete stubbornness on the part of the governance. Here the guy almost lost an eye while on national duty and then restrict him to play in the league for seeking a legal counsel. What world are we living in", asked Ali.

Ali says he is saddened by the lack of compassion shown towards Reddy and has challenged the moral values of the league.

I'm saddened by the leagues absolute disrespect towards one of its very own and then portray him as the bad guy is preposterous".

Ali added the entire manifestation of the threat is laughable.
