Sikazwe’s ap­point­ment as Tech­ni­cal Di­rec­tor could be a mis­fit

Zambian Business Times - - SPORTS -

The Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion of Zam­bia – FAZ in a press re­lease an­nounced the ap­point­ment of FIFA ref­eree Janny Sikazwe as Tech­ni­cal Di­rec­tor. The same re­lease con­firmed ap­pointed of Adrian Kashala as Gen­eral Sec­re­tary.

In line with ar­ti­cle 38 (3) of the Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion of Zam­bia(FAZ), the FAZ pres­i­dent has pro­posed and the FAZ Ex­ec­u­tive Mem­bers have ac­cepted un­der clause 38(4) the ap­point­ment of Mr. Adrian Kashala as FAZ Gen­eral Sec­re­tary with ef­fect from 1st Septem­ber 2018. The FAZ Ex­ec­u­tive Mem­bers have fur­ther ap­pointed FIFA Ref­eree, Mr. Janny Sikazwe as FAZ Tech­ni­cal Di­rec­tor Sub­ject to sec­ond­ment by his em­ploy­ers.

How­ever, this ap­point­ment for the top Zam­bian ref­eree, Janny has been cited as one that would be ca­reer lim­it­ing es­pe­cially that he has been in the global lime light. Other schools of thought felt Janny should not take up the role but aim to im­prove ref­er­ee­ing in Zam­bia which leaves much to be de­sired. They have cited the need for Janny to set­tle for a role that will al­low him to spe­cial­ize in ref­er­ee­ing. Janny has flown the Zam­bian flag high at the world cup de­spite the South­ern African na­tion not qual­i­fy­ing for the pres­ti­gious tour­na­ment.

It is yet to be de­ter­mined whether Janny will ac­cept the ap­point­ment or not.
