Midfielder Marvin Oliver s con-
tract with Central FC was not ter-
minated as was previously report-
ed. Yesterday, in an attempt to clear
the air on the situation, club Man-
aging Director Brent Sancho said
the 41-year old rastafarian foot-
baller may have been misled by
people he trusted and who may
have ulterior motives.
Sancho in fact made it clear Oliver
is still under contract with his club,
a contract that ends on May 31 this
Oliver, a former national stand-
out midfielder told the media his
services at the Central Sharks was
terminated on Tuesday, for a number
of reasons that include his involve-
ment in a signed petition a year ago
for monies he claimed were owed
to the players; because he disagreed
with some of the decisions that were
being made at the club and because
of the disrespect that was being
metted out to him at the club.
This was followed by less playing
time on the field for the player
which led to his (Oliver s) decision
to ask club officials to be sent out
on loan to another club.
Sancho pointed out that at no
point in time in the so-called letter
of termination, his club stated the
player s service was being terminat-
"We were told that Marvin wanted
to be released from the club to con-
tinue his career elsewhere and we
agreed to it, so that we would not
prevent him from moving on, if he
wanted to. In fact it was clearly
stated that the club was saddened
to have to let him go, but it was
what he wanted" Sancho explained.
"Though the Sharks does not
wash its dirty linen in public, the
club felt compelled to clear the air
on this major issue in a daring
attempt to protect its players, staff
and more-so its sponsors."
In a release the club made it clear
it could have fired Oliver if they
wanted to, as he has found himself
on the wrong side of the club rules
on many occasions, including show-
ing blatant disrespect to a potential
sponsor which led to the sponsor
opting out and the club losing a deal
for $200,000 a year, as well as run-
ings with the law in which he got
help for two legal matters that had
already been ventilated in the public
The Central FC football boss said:
"Instead of firing him, we supported
him because we wanted to help him.
We have not done anything wrong,
more than give Mr Oliver preferen-
tial treatment that made other play-
ers question us on things Oliver got
away with but not them.
"All this we did for Oliver because
we valued his services at the club"
Oliver s decision to vent in-house
issues to the media and by extension
the public, has left him guilty of
gross misconduct which, according
to Sancho is a cause for termination.
However, Sancho said he will not
fire him, but would prefer if the
player could attend one of many
meetings called to deal with the
One of those meeting was sched-
uled to be held at 2 pm yesterday,
but the player never showed up.
Sancho said they have even gone
as far as asking Chief Executive Offi-
cer of the TT Pro League Dexter
Skeene to set up a meeting with
Oliver and his club to find an ami-
cable solution to the problem.
Asked if Oliver had broken any
law by his actions, Sancho said he
has breached a rule of the TT Pro
League which prevents players going
to the media as their first form of
solving grievance at clubs.
Sancho said he does not want to
fire his player and close friend, with
whom he has played a lot of football
in the past, but is adamant they
would need to have a long and
intense talk with the veteran player
before they can move on.
Oliver s out-burst has baffled
other coaches and staff members as
it appeared to have been a done deal
that he would have been coach of
the club s youth teams.
It is expected that Oliver will
understand how close he is to the
end of his career as a player and
work with the Sharks as they pre-
pare him for a life after football.
Attempts to contact Oliver yes-
terday proved futile.
