After a terrible start in 2019-20 PVFA Premier League with only two wins in nine matches, Tupuji Imere has to make up for lost time in order to avoid relegation. The team coached by legendary David Chilia will have a strengthened squad for the final part of the season to fight for every single point in the five remaining matches.
One of the players that are confirmed in the squad is Vanuatu international Raoul Coulon. The 24-year-old footballer is back to his homeland after spending some months abroad due to seasonal working. His first appearance for Tupuji Imere in this year was in PVFA Independence Cup last month: “I am more than happy to be back to football,” said Coulon. His team was knocked-out in the group stage with only one win in three matches – a disappointing campaign for a team that won this tournament last year.
Coulon has not played in the current PVFA Premier League season yet so he is determined to help his team to win matches in order to escape from relegation to PVFA First Division – the second-tier of football in Port Vila: “I think we are ready for Premier League,” he stated.
Tupuji Imere is currently in the seventh position with eight points in nine matches – only two points ahead bottom-placed team Mauwia. You can check the standings, schedule and top goalscorers of 2019-20 PVFA Premier League by clicking here.
