JFF Denies Report Linking Eriksson To Reggae Boyz Coaching Job

The Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) is refuting a report that Sven-Goran Eriksson is slated to replace Theodore Whitmore as the coach of Jamaica’s senior men’s football team.

On Wednesday, The Mirror UK published a report stating:

“Eriksson is expected to accept a job with the Jamaican FA that will see him combine a coaching brief with a role as technical director. His challenge will be to qualify the Caribbean island for the World Cup in Qatar in 2022.”


A statement refuting the claim was then provided by the JFF. It reads as follows:

“The Jamaica Football Federation is aware of a report in the Mirror newspaper in the UK stating amongst other things that Sven-Goran Eriksson is set to take up a coaching position as well as the position of Technical Director at the Jamaica Football Federation.

The JFF wishes to categorically deny this report.

We wish also to state that the current National Head Coach Theodore Whitmore has not tendered a resignation and therefore there is no vacant position to be filled.”
