Coach Omar Edwards says he is uncertain whether he will be returning to Tivoli Gardens next season, this after the west Kingston-based club was knocked out at the quarterfinal stage of the Red Stripe Premier League yesterday.

Tivoli were beaten 2-0 by Cavalier at the Edward Seaga Sports Complex courtesy of first half goals from Nique Daley in the 26th minute and Alex Marshall in the 30th.

Following the defeat, there were loud calls from a section of the crowd for the Edwards to be removed from his post.

"I am unable to say at this time if I will be back next season, only God knows the future," said Edwards.

"I believe that over that last few seasons I have revolutionised Tivoli Gardens. I have turned Tivoli Gardens back into what I would call a competitive team," he said.

"You have to learn to build and building takes time but at this point I am unable to say what is my next move," Edwards said.

He added that he was very disappointed with his team's performance against Cavalier because they could have done a lot better.

"The end result is not pleasing, but we created several opportunities, which we failed to score from and so there were some positives for us in this game," Edwards said.

"I am not surprised from what I am hearing (from the spectators) because I know this place quite well and the fans are entitled to their own opinions," he said.

"I know for a coach that when you are coaching in the inner-city, unfortunately you don't come across most of the brightest people and so when I took this job, I took it as part of the package that once we are not winning, the spectators are going to make some sound," Edwards stated.
