In an interview with Goal, Namai said that every foundation has been laid to ensure that the new trainer seamlessly fits into the system. “The transition will be quick and harmonious. He has been given the technical advice and he knows what to find,” he said, adding: “He also knows the weak areas and what he will need to work on.”
