TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO Pro League clubs have sent counter-proposals to the governing Trinidad and Tobago Football Association after recently rejecting a memorandum of understanding (MOU) which would have seen the governing body directly involved in league operations and the payment of salaries.

Acting Pro League chairman Brent Sancho told the Express yesterday that the Pro League is now awaiting a response from the TTFA, after sending its counter proposals two days ago. “We sent (the TTFA) counter proposals to cover concerns which the clubs and owners have,” Sancho stated, “We are awaiting a response and even discussions so that we can start football in the appropriate time.”
