Mamelodi on state of women’s foot­ball

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport -

ur­gent mat­ter and I think a lot of my emails to MaSibanda (Miriam, for­mer Zim­babwe Women’s Foot­ball League chair­per­son) did say to her that the new ex­ec­u­tive com­mit­tee would ac­tu­ally deal with it.

"So, I mean, we re­quest that the women’s foot­ball is­sues be ad­dressed ur­gently be­cause this doesn’t have any­thing to do with the debt it is just about mak­ing sure that the women’s foot­ball fra­ter­nity is or­gan­ised and they de­ter­mine their lead­er­ship and go back to busi­ness."

Yes­ter­day, Sibanda, and women’s foot­ball chair­per­sons from the splin­ter group, made their sub­mis­sions to the Fifa rep­re­sen­ta­tive.

The North­ern Re­gion women’s foot­ball chair­per­son Wil­bert Ram­bana­pasi even told the point per­son that their play­ers, who form the bulk of the Mighty War­riors squad, will not go to Africa Cup of Na­tions un­til Zifa recog­nises the splin­ter group as an of­fi­cial league.

“I know some­times MaSibanda, for ex­am­ple, felt de­serted but our hands were very tied be­cause as Fifa we couldn’t come up with a di­rec­tive on women’s foot­ball, it re­ally needed a lo­cal so­lu­tion," said Mamelodi.

"Re­gret­tably, she was then pulled into the courts and when things like that hap­pen you have to wait un­til they are done."
