PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC) – Belgian Tom Saintfiet has resigned as head coach of Trinidad and Tobago after just two months and four games in charge.

The 43 year old lost three of the four contests.

Significantly, T&T last week went down in both games in the Caribbean Cup playoff series, to miss out on a chance in the prestigious CONCACAF Gold Cup.

Saintfiet was a controversial choice to replace Stephen Hart who was fired last December, after the T&T’s poor start to the CONCACAF final round of the 2018 World Cup qualifiers.
