Fa’arodo commits to Hekari, aims for Asia

The local media in Solomon Islands reported this week that Fa’arodo’s decision to play for the champions in the 2010 FIFA World Club Championship and the 2010/11 Oceania Champions League, O-League is final.
Fa’arodo said that the main reason for his decision is because of the 2010 FIFA World Club Championship which Hekari United will represent the Oceania Football Confederation (OFC) in at the end of the year.
“This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for me. I want to experience the challenge of playing in one of the biggest football events in the world,” he says.
For Fa’arado playing in the FIFA World Club Championship also gives him the opportunity to attract the attention of scouts for clubs in the Asian region and maybe even European clubs.
“I am interested in playing in the J-League (Japan) or the K-League (South Korea). I hope the World Club Championship will help me do that,” Fa’arodo said.
“At this stage my focus is 100 per cent on Hekari and the O-League. Ours is a tough group and will contribute greatly to our preparations for the World Club championship,” Fa’arodo said.
This revelation has put to rest continued speculation that Fa’arodo will switch to the green and gold of local champions and O-League representative club, Koloale.
Fa’arodo was instrumental in Koloale’s qualification for the 2010/11 O-League.
Koloale were hoping to get Fa’arodo’s signature on paper for their O-League campaign in attempt to have in their arsenal the potent combination he has with Benjamin Totori.
This combination, discovered during the Our Telekom National Club Championship in June, will not be something Koloale can bank upon at least for this season.
Totori has been seen playing with Koloale in local friendly matches but the confirmation of a contract for the former Waitakere United striker with the local O-League club has not yet been announced.
