Savio Drops Out of GFA Race
Goa Football Association’s Honorary Secretary Savio Messias withdrew from the race for the organisation’s president’s post but retained his nomination for the post of member from Mormugao Zone.
With Savio’s resignation it will now be a straight fight between business tycoon Shrinivas Dempo and Peter Vaz.
While reiterating that he had filed his nomination for the top post of the organization only in the interest of football, Savio said he would continue to work for the betterment of the game.
Regretting that the current elections are being conducted in a vitiated environment with political influence, dinner diplomacy and even back-stabbing being resorted to, he hoped that the voting clubs will wake up and smell the coffee to vote for the right candidates.
