As talks be­gan ahead of the TT and St Kitts/Nevis game in June, Hadad told Guardian Me­dia Sports he had al­ready en­gaged Paras­ram for guid­ance on that match. «I spoke to the CMO al­ready this morn­ing and it is dif­fi­cult for him to pre­dict from now where we’re go­ing to be at that time, where is COVID19 go­ing to be, are we go­ing to al­low vac­cines?.»

«We had that dis­cus­sion this morn­ing and the ques­tion is are they go­ing to al­low vac­ci­nat­ed play­ers to not quar­an­tine? all de­pends on what kind of re­sults they have and how many vac­cines they’ve re­ceived, and how good our vac­ci­na­tion process has been. Ac­cord­ing to him (Paras­ram) it is im­pos­si­ble to give me any kind of guid­ance now, but we will con­tin­ue seek­ing, prob­a­bly again in the Do­mini­can Re­pub­lic on an al­ter­na­tive venue we can use.»
