ZIFA NC called on to do the right thing

Story by Raynald Ngwarati, Sports Reporter

Football analysts say the re-appointed ZIFA Normalisation Committee should learn from its past errors and take a progressive stance to better football in the country.

With football lovers on a number of occasions expressing frustration with the administration of the most loved sport in the country, the new lease of life for the NC has been described as a time of corrections if the Committee has football at heart.

“Football is practical, it is played on the ground. So the NC doesn’t have the personnel that can take Zimbabwe to the next stage. Everyone right now is critical of the standard of play. It is because the Normalisation Committee does not have the people,” said a football analyst, Erick Aisam.

Legends Academy coach, Blessed Mapuwa said, “They must not select players because they are family or relatives, selection should be by merit. May they make decisions for the country not to act like football is confined to their families and households. They need to cast their nets wider across the country and then we play well.”

Meanwhile, the FUTSAL community have hailed the Normalisation Committee for recognising other components of Soccer like five aside.

“We’re very grateful that the ZIFA NC is working with us. From the previous committee from which some members have been expelled, they worked well with us and there has been notable progress which I can safely say,” said Northern region FUTSAL League organising secretary,  Vuso Mhlanga.

FIFA renewed the terms of the ZIFA Normalisation Committee chairperson Lincoln Mutasa as well as board members Rose Mugadza and Nyasha Sanyamandwe, while former vice chairperson Cynthia Malaba and Sikhumbuzo Ndebele have been shown the exit door.
