Chiyangwa not interested in CAF secretary general position

ZIFA and Cosafa president Dr Philip Chiyangwa has denied reports suggesting he had been appointed CAF secretary general.

The position is vacant following the resignation of Hichman El Amrani , but Chiyangwa says he had no intentions of landing such a post and it was actually an inferior position.

Speaking to ZIFA’s official website Dr Chiyangwa said, “I understand that there is a story circulating on the social media, insinuating that I have been appointed to the position of CAF secretary general There is no such development, and these are absolute falsehoods.

“A CAF Secretary General is the head of CAF’s secretariat, and a full-time employee of the confederation.

“This is an inferior position to the ones I hold now, therefore, I do not harbour any ambitions whatsoever of landing that position.

“Above all, I currently hold far more superior positions to the vacant post, I am the President of both the Zimbabwe Football Association and COSAFA and it will be illogical for me to be appointed as the CAF Secretary General.

“I am also an advisor to the CAF President, who is also the Vice President of the Federation of International Football Associations (FIFA); zvidiki here izvozvo? (is that a small responsibility?),” Dr Chiyangwa added.
