Faced with a combination of poor attitude towards preparation by players to an unclear direction by the management of Matura ReUnited, coach Travis Mulraine has resigned.
Mulraine's ReUnited was knocked out of the T&T Super League's League Cup tournament on Sunday after a 2-3 loss to Petit Valley/Diego Martin United on Sunday. Mulraine said he faced a problem where there was always a different crop of players at training sessions as there was just an unwillingness to train. "We had one of the worst defence in the league, in fact I think we conceded the most goals to date, but what kept us from going down was the fact that we scored a lot of goals. I was hoping to do some work on the defence but the players just failed to show," Mulraine said.
"Then there was a situation where the sponsor and the management team could not see eye-to-eye on the direction the team should move, so the sponsor pulled out," Mulraine explained.
The former Queen's Royal College (QRC) midfielder also had to deal with a situation where he reached home well after 10pm every night because of long distances he had to travel to train the team.
