FAZ president and soccer icon Kalusha Bwalya says it is too early forPortugal legend Luis Figo to contest for the presidency of FIFA.
Figo, 42, a former world player of the year, and two others are challenging incumbent FIFA president Sepp Blatter on 29th May.
Kalusha has openly backed Blatter.
“I’d have loved to see Figo go into the Portuguese football association, learn the ropes then come out,” Kalusha told BBC.
“It’s the logical way but he (Figo) has decided to go for the big position. It’s going to be very difficult in my opinion,” he said.
Kalusha said he was happy with the way Blatter was running FIFA.
“We have made a commitment to president Sepp Blatter. We are happy with the way he has run things,” Kalusha added.
And Kalusha suggested that he has not immediate plans to run for CAF presidency.
He also spared praises for infamous CAF president Issa Hayatou.
“Everything in its time.I think we have good leaders in Issa Hayatou and Sepp Blatter.”
