The Jamaica Football Federation has reacted with disappointment to a recent article in the Daily Gleaner in which the PLCA chairman, Edward Seaga, suggested that the JFF is trying to destabilise the organisation.
In a swift response to the article published in the Sunday Gleaner, the JFF said the statements attributed to Mr. Seaga were unfortunate and should not have come following an emergency meeting with stakeholders last Friday.
The JFF said opportunities were afforded to everyone including the PLCA chairman to address the concerns that threatened the start of the Red Stripe Premier League on the weekend.
Seaga suggested that there were parties at work trying to reclaim the administration of the nation's top league given the kind of sponsorship they have been able to garner for the clubs since its inception in 2007.
The JFF said its unfortunate that Mr. Seaga could have suggested that it was interfering in the running of the league given the free hand it has given the organisation to govern the league.
The JFF said it only intervened after some clubs wrote to them asking for an intervention to address concerns regarding proper governance of the Premier League.
