Goa Football Association president Churchill Alemao on Wednesday, January 2 condoled the death of former FIFA referee and former FIFA Referees Instructor Alex Vaz which occurred in Mumbai today.
Churchill Alemao while extending condolences to his family, said that Alex will be remembered for his total command in refereeing especially during the Bandodkar Gold Trophy finals and the finals of Women’s National Championships in Goa.
“His mastery, his command was unique, his confidence level being optimum. I have not seen another Goan referee of that calibre. He left his fine refereeing imprints on the sands of Goa and Goa will certainly miss this tall personality. He even authored two books on the Laws of Football. The GFA is indebted to Alex for his great contribution to Goan football, especially in the refereeing department. Whenever the GFA needed his services, Goa was his first love,” added Churchill Alemao.
