The Bahrain coach promised to make field visits to all national clubs to keep himself informed on the latest developments in Bahrain football.


On their part, the coaches expressed appreciation for this initiative and commitment, stressing that such events would promote the spirit of co-operation.

Calderon's assistant coach Mohammed Al Shamlan and technical affairs supervisor Abid Al Ansari also attended the meeting.

Coaches who attended the meeting included Brazilian Badou Ferreira of Bahrain Club, Tunisia's Samir Shammam of Muharraq, Abdullah Fahad Al Dossary of Riffa, Mohammed Al Muqla of Al Hidd, Mohammed Zuwaid of Al Hala, Al Shabab's Salman Ibrahim and Iraqi Hussein Shaker and Isa Town's Bahraini tactician Khalil Shuwaier.
