National senior men's coach, Theodore Whitmore, has expressed some concern about the readiness of his squad one month before the CONCACAF Nations League kicks off.

"We have the Nations League coming up and personally, I don't like what is happening," Whitmore told The Gleaner yesterday.

He declined to go deeply into the details of his concerns but added: "There are a number of areas on the field that are of concern and I have spoken numerous times about that. It (problem) has to do with the team. It has to do with areas (positions) on the pitch that I am concerned about."

Whitmore said the Nations League squad will be a mix of local Red Stripe Premier League and US Major League Soccer players.




He said the management of the local football is still working on a proper football philosophy and culture but also declined to say how far they have reached or what is stalling the process.

"We have a lot of things to sort out and we have not got there as yet. Personally, it has to do with the whole team and where we want to go," Whitmore told The Gleaner after a training session at Excelsior High school, yesterday.

The training squad: Amal Knight, Dennis Taylor, Ladale Richie, Javain Brown, Ricardo Thomas, Tevin Shaw, Fabion McCarthy, Alex Marshall, Chevone Marsh, Peter Vassell, Deshane Beckford, Daniel Green, Barrington Pryce, Kaheem Parris, Kevaughn Isaacs, Ajeanie Talbott, Shandel Senior, Ray Campbell, Malique Howell, Nickjay White and Nicolloyd Dinham.
