Will Deon McCauley Be Back for Second Round of World Cup Qualifiers?

Deon McCauley

The issue of Rawell Pelayo wasn’t brought up during the ordinary congress of the F.F.B. on Saturday but the future of star striker Deon McCauley in the upcoming home and away series against the Dominican Republic was a topic of discussion.  There has been formal correspondence between F.F.B. and McCauley concerning his participation in the subsequent World Cup qualifying games.  While he has been formally invited to take part in the tournament, he is required to find his way to Belize on his own dime since he is presently unassigned to an international team.

 

Ruperto Vicente, President, F.F.B.

“The national team director made it clear in his report this morning that Deon McCauley is on the national team program.  He is a part of it, he is invited to be a part of the national team but he cannot be given the same courtesy as international players because he is not assigned to any team at the moment, you know.  So he is a part of the team, he has been called to come in to practice just like any other player.”

“Is that how you would treat other athletes in the past, I mean to say this is a Belizean who is one of our best or probably the best right now and shouldn’t we have some kind of courtesy to treat him with more respect?”

Ruperto Vicente

“Well certainly, we are treating him with a lot of respect.  The fact that we have placed him, that he is on the national team that’s maximum respect to any of our players.  Remember that all our players are important in this process so we are treating every player with respect.”

 

Duane Moody

“Has there been any confirmation from McCauley that he will be here for the training and of course playing in the match that’s upcoming later this year?”

 

Ruperto Vicente

“He has sent an email stating that he had wanted to come but he has also set some conditions, you know.  And those conditions include that his transportation from the United States to here be provided.  He will also want to negotiate, you know, his fee for playing on the national team.  It is stated that our international players as well as our national players are treated with the same respect and they get the same payment for being on the national team.”

    How dumb!

    This man should have had a place on the team from day one idiot! and he should be treated with much more respect and paid much more than the others.

    If he gets hurt playing for team Belize he would have pissed away his US contract. Tell me when this does not make sense to you anymore Vicente?

    So let’s summarize this:
    1) you disrespected the man by not inviting him from the jump!
    2) You now want the man to pay his way to Belize?
    3) You do not want to compensate the man his worth; especially having the potential of getting injured and lose his foreign contract? Really?
    4) And he should feel appreciated and rush home to play for you?

    If I was him I would not come home to play. You guys need to understand the value of someone and pay them accordingly. Not too bright Vicente!
