Power Dynamos hoping for new brooms in post-Blatter era

Sports Power Dynamos hoping for new brooms in post-Blatter era

Power Dynamos have welcomed FIFA President Sepp Blatter’s resignation and stated that they hoped a new breed of football administrators will emerge from the cleansing process.

Blatter quit on Tuesday as FIFA was hit by a corruption scandal that has opened criminal investigations in the USA and Switzerland.

“We wish to express our disappointment at the current revelations in the football world,” Power club secretary Ricky Mamfunda said in a press statement.

“Allegations of corruption and bribery against our senior football administrators at FIFA and at some national FAs around the World are not only damaging to game of football but also erode confidence in companies that are investing huge amounts of money in the World’s greatest sport.

“African Governments and indeed the business world has been putting into football huge amounts of money and to have these issues coming out now makes sad reading.

“In Zambia we are in the process of introducing club licensing which will commercialize the game of football, and these corruption scandals have come at a very bad time when corporate organizations and business people have been investing a lot of money in Zambian football.

“We feel time has come for all of us who have been tasked to manage football in Zambia to reflect on these issues and ask ourselves if we are doing justice to the game of football by our conduct.

“It is our hope and trust that a New breed of football administrators will emerge after this cleansing process has been completed.”
