As Myanmar strives for greater achievement in sports (football excellence); the football Association must consider setting up a u-23 national team, that should take part in the National league of Myanmar.
This u-23 national team should have the right to recruit any player who is u-23 from all teams taking part in the Myanmar National league. This means that the players will be the best youth players from all teams in Myanmar playing together every week in the league. So they will also be ready to represent Myanmar on the international front in international football tournament.
Such team, if founded, should be handling by the National coach of Myanmar, internationally and locally.
That’s the recommendation from Ricky B. Swen, Jr, international players’ promoter, and owner of Kubba Fashion of Singapore, a company dealing in sports wear with its own trade mark brand name of Kubba.( Please see website: www.kubba-fashion.com)
Mr. Swen said the Myanmar u-23 team should be established for representing Myanmar in international football.
“Such a team, taking part in the National pro league will help to improve the standard of the national team of Myanmar internationally, he said in a press release issued recently.
The International Players’ agent, who also owns SWEN LABELS (MALAYSIA) SDN BHD, said, “I am confident that since sports in general and football in particular is of significance to Myanmar’s development, it is an industry that could generate substantial benefits in terms of foreign exchange from top players going overseas to play.”
Also the FA should insist on every professional club to have an u-16 to u-18 team (feeder team) and they should have their league too.
He explained that football must be used as a medium of employment for youths who are dedicated to play to the international level, which is every player’s dream.
Myanmar, Swen said is still in the football development process, and need to also improve its professional football league, by setting a higher standard that foreign players must have, to be able to play in the clubs in Myanmar, so that the local Myanmar footballers will benefit and improve the national team.
Football must be used as a means to get many Myanmar youths engaged in channeling their talents to productive work. The FA should also seriously look at the possibilities of recruiting foreign players to represent Myanmar football.
When you look at France today, England, Germany, Italy, all are recruiting foreign players for their national teams. The bottom line is to improve football for the country national team.
Clubs must also set their own standards higher and also invest in bringing good players and coaches. Look at Japan and South Korea. In the 1980s, Japan and Korea football was not good. But later big companies took over small clubs and use 5% to 10% of the company’s yearly benefits and invested into these small clubs and the companies use the clubs as marketing tools to promote their business. So it becomes a win-win situation. And also football now improves in Japan and Korea.
Also there is a need for 3 to 4 stadiums to be built.
