FIFA sanction has put huge strain on my family, says coach of youth side TW Braga

Hassan Ayari

THE Academy Director of Lisburn League youth side TW Braga has spoken about how a shock FIFA fine of 10,000 Swiss francs for his club has piled pressure, stress and anxiety on to him and his family.

Tim Wareing has been coaching at youth level in Northern Ireland for over two decades. In 2013, he founded TW Braga, a club and football academy offering coaching schemes, including a disability programme, for toddlers to teenagers.

Wareing's plan was for kids to have fun and coach them to be the best they could be. Thoughts of being punished by FIFA were as far away as a trip to the moon.
