U Zaw Zaw, President of Myanmar Football Federation (MFF), received Eric Abrams, the new football technical director from Belgium, who is going to be appointed at MFF, at Novotel Yangon Max Hotel on 1 October.
In his meeting with Eric Abrams, U Zaw Zaw warmly welcomed him for coming here to work for Myanmar football arena as he worked for Australian Football Federation.
“We would like you to try as a technical director for ensuring that Myanmar national men’s and women’s football teams will achieve success in the upcoming international football tournaments. Moreover, Myanmar has not yet achieved success to some degree on account of unprofessional conducts. For that reason, I want to mention that you can help guide the players of Myanmar national selected teams and youth projects in a systemic manner, making them become professionals along with their different sectors, including lifestyles and fitness of the players. I would like to give you some suggestions on what you would do for which teams with long-term projects and which teams with short-term projects, so as to achieve success. Myanmar players can compete with those from other countries in techniques and morals. If Myanmar players conduct professionally in the areas of lifestyles and disciplines, there will be no reason of not achieving success. I believe that, at present, the football standard of Myanmar national women’s team is advancing to a certain degree. If they make more efforts than now, they will advance to the Asian level. That is why you are wanted here to help try for the development of Myanmar women’s football arena,” said U Zaw Zaw.
Eric Abrams replied that his meeting with the president of MFF brought about much benefit.
The technical director is responsible for nurturing and producing youth players and upgrading the capacity of football coaches, especially for the whole football arena.
“I will be in collaboration with local coaches. I am feeling excited about taking up the duty of the technical director mainly necessary for Myanma football arena,” he said.
