FIFA has nullified a life ban imposed by Zifa on Philip Chiyangwa last month.

Chiyangwa, who is the COSAFA president, along with Omega Sibanda was banned for life after the Felton Kamambo-led administration accused him of bringing local football into disrepute through the 2019 COSAFA Cup bid debacle which saw the Warriors banned from next year’s edition.

The association also blamed the ex-Zimbabwe football boss of causing chaos in the Warriors camp during the 2019 Afcon held in Egypt two months ago.

According to a statement by COSAFA, FIFA has over-ruled the ban saying Zifa failed to follow a proper procedure in handing down the judgement.

The statement has also revealed that the world football body has asked Chiyangwa to work with the ZIFA administration and the Sports Commission to find solutions to the problems affecting domestic football.
