The Jamaica Football Federation in a statement suggested that former national coach Carl Brown misunderstood the information sent to him regarding remuneration for his services.
It’s reported that Brown turned down the JFF’s offer to lead the Reggae Boyz on an interim basis because he was offered only 100 US dollars per day for the duration of his agreement.
The association admitted that its president Captain Horace Burrell did make initial contact with Brown and after not getting a response sought to formalize its offer to Brown through an email.
The JFF explained that in the absence of the discussion on first his availability and his overall package, the email listed one area of certainty, the per-diem allowance.
If they had received confirmation of Coach Brown’s availability, the JFF said the terms of his engagement would have been discussed and finalized with him.
The statement said all head coaches of the National Senior team are offered: Accommodation during match engagement,
Ground transportation, A salary, and Per diem allowance
The statement said these areas would have been the subject of discussion with Coach Brown.
