UNC backs its chairman

“We pledge our full support,” UNC vice-chairman Dr Fuad Khan said in a two-paragraph press release issued yesterday.

“It is...important to note that according to a release issued by FIFA, all charges before the FIFA ethics committee have been dismissed and the presumption of innocence maintained,” Khan said. “Mr Warner now turns his full attention to serving his country and his party. We pledge our full support in his quest to serve the people of our great nation.” The UNC said it hoped Warner could one day return to FIFA.

“It is our hope that Mr Warner will someday return to the executive level of FIFA to lend his expertise to the future development of the game, particularly with respect to the Caribbean region.”

“The resignation of Jack Warner as vice-president of FIFA and as president of Concacaf to focus on his duties as a minister of the Government is a noble one,” Khan said. “We in the UNC and me in particular as its vice-chairman salute the accomplishments of Mr Warner to world football, his involvement at the international level, his passion to see the game develop in the Caribbean to match world class standards and his unwavering support and devotion to the game locally, with him being instrumental in Trinidad and Tobago making it to the FIFA World Cup in 2006.”
