The Guyana Football Federation (GFF) categorically debunks the article entitled “GFF Likely to Terminate Elite League Management’s Contract” written by Mr. Rawle Toney in the January 6 edition of the Guyana Chronicle.
The GFF states unequivocally that it does not intend to renege on the contract entered into in good faith with the management team for the STAG Elite League and quash any contract.
The genesis of this issue is anchored on the disgruntlement of Mr. Rawle Toney who was dismissed from the GFF. On Monday January 4 last, the GFF found it necessary to terminate the services of Mr. Toney as the Sponsorship, Marketing and Communications Director due to his poor performance.
On being handed his termination letter, Mr. Toney proceeded to behave in a most obstreperous manner that occasioned the involvement of the Guyana Police Force. This article was penned by him following his dismissal.
It is patently clear that Mr. Toney has embarked on a vindictive and malicious pathway to malign and besmirch the GFF, and his modus operandi seems to be the use of fabrication and distortion of sensitive information he would have been privy to. He has clearly used his position as an employee of the Guyana Chronicle to pursue this agenda. To this end the GFF has obtained legal counsel to treat with this situation.
The GFF seizes this opportunity to bring to the attention of the media, businesses and sponsors with whom it has a relationship, and the general football fraternity at large that Mr. Toney, having been dismissed from the GFF, is no longer authorized to conduct or transact any business on its behalf.
