VFF technical director on the move

Vatu, who enjoyed an illustrious career as a player for both club and country, is leaving to contest the Vanuatu general election next month but says his time with VFF has been an incredible journey, both professionally and personally.
“It has been a privilege to work in the sport that I love and I wish the Vanuatu football staff and players all the best for the future,” he says.
“I leave VFF with a deep respect for the football family, for whom it was a pleasure to serve, and I will always be a supporter of football in the years to come.”
VFF academy coach Etienne Mermer paid tribute to Vatu’s contribution to the development of football in the country.
“During his time here he has shared a lot of his expertise and skills with coaches in the islands who have learned a lot,” he says.
“Over the past two years, Charles has been dedicated and given his all for Vanuatu football and we wish him well with his future endeavours. Our responsibility now is to do everything possible to ensure that the Vanuatu technical department moves forward with success in the years to come.”
Even before joining up with the national federation, Vatu had already made his mark on the country’s sporting history by scoring Vanuatu’s first ever goal in FIFA World Cup qualifying, a strike against New Zealand’s All Whites in 1992.
