Despite the setback the BFF boss refused to give up his dream and he looks forward for a glorious future.
‘We have got a few results from the academy teams. We emerged champions in the SAFF U-16 championship and the U-19 team played the final of the SAFF U-19 Championship [Bangladesh played the semifinal] and we emerged champions in AFC U-14 Championship.
‘That is the outcome of our development activities. The future looks bright.’
Although Salahuddin kept his faith on the future generation but BFF had to close the activities of their football academy though he believes it is a temporary problem.
‘The activities of academy remained close temporary due to the renovation of activities. In line with the FIFA officials’ recommendations, we are trying to rope in proper professional staff as the local coaches are not good enough to produce world-class players.’
