Decision on Dempo appeal soon, says Colaco

Colaco said the All India Football Federation has received the application and its Appeals Committee would take a decision in this regard next month.

“Yes, Dempo have sent an application to AIFF and we have received it yesterday. We will first look into it and then take the decision,” Colaco said.

 “The decision in this regard would be taken next month after the holidays,” Colaco added.

Dempo had refused to release Gawli and Naik for the national camp citing their injuries while the AIFF insisted that both the players could be looked after by the national team doctor at the camp.

AIFF in its emergency committee meeting on November 30 had suspended the duo from playing for Dempo till a decision by its disciplinary committee on their club.

The disciplinary committee handed a Rs 5 lakh fine on Dempo for disobeying the AIFF directive while clearing Gawli and Naik.

Colaco said each of the India under-23 players who won the SAFF Championships in Dhaka has been rewarded with Rs 1.5 lakh.

Colaco informed that India will field its junior team in the women’s football competition of the forthcoming South Asian Federation Games in Bangladesh starting on January 29.
