Vibe CT 105 W Connection assistant Coach Ben Davies believes that Trinidad and Tobago international forward Andre Toussaint is deserving of the opportunity which he has taken up in the United States.

The fleet footed forward left Trinidad on Sunday for A League club Charleston Battery in Florida where he would spend the next three months.

Davies told '', "Andre is probably the best player we have on the Trinidad and Tobago national team and he deserves the opportunity. We are happy for him and we wish him all the best."

The assistant Coach admits the club would miss the talented striker but added that the move was in the best interest of the player saying, "Andre is a quality player and we always like a lot of quality players at W Connection but this is an opportunity for him(Toussaint) to move to much better things. We would miss him but that's how it is in football all around the world," said the Englishman.

Davies also believes that Toussaint's move to the A League creates and opening for younger players to step up and make a name for themselves.

He said, "This is also good for the club to produce more quality players. Toussaint has left a mantle for younger players at our club to step up and carry on. We see this as a great opportunity for them to have their chance at filling Andre's position."

W Connection are currently 4th on the League standings trailing leaders San Juan Jabloteh by seven points and without key players in goal keeper Jan Michael Williams and midfielder Silvio Spann on trials in England with Sheffield United and now Toussaint joining the A League club, Davies isn't bothered at his team's chances of getting to the top.

With a level confidence the W Connection coach said, "Nothing is impossible for W Connection at the moment. Our goals for this season are the same, which is to win the League and all of the knockouts."

"We are without key players such as Andre but there is no need to worry. We would continue to do what we do and I believe we still have the players to achieve this season," ended the Englishman.
