United States-born Jabari Garibaldi is looking to be on the roster of Jamaica’s Premier league team, Boys Town in a bid to earn a spot on the Reggae Boyz World Cup team.
Garibaldi, who has a Jamaican mother, trained with the Reggae Boyz four years ago and wants another chance to catch the eye of national coach Theodore ‘Tappa’ Whitmore. He believes that playing in the Premier League next season will give the Reggae Boyz enough time to get a first-hand look at his ability.
Garibaldi, 25, played with Portmore’s Michael Binns for two seasons at Fort Lauderdale and also represented Miami Fusion in the National Premier Soccer League, an American league commonly recognised as being fourth tier, though it has been given no official designation by US Soccer.
He spent last season in Iceland but is back home training with the Fusion. Garibaldi can play the roles of centre-back, left-back, defensive and attacking midfield.
