Zifa president Felton Kamambo has dismissed calls for his resignation, insisting he has not failed yet.

Kamambo took over from Philip Chiyangwa nine months ago but his reign has not been a smooth one, and it’s littered with several lows.

The recent ones include the Mighty Warriors debacle, the Warriors’ shock 0-1 loss to lowly Somalia in a World Cup qualifier and the Young Warriors’ humiliation in South Africa on Friday night.

Speaking in an interview with the Sunday Mail, the Zifa boss said his board needs some time to put things in order.

He said: “We are just over six months into this board and we are left with more than 40 months in office so I believe it’s too early to judge us.

“Some of the problems we have now were inherited from the previous Zifa boards. We also need time to come up with our own systems.

“We can’t be judged with one Warriors game, or the Mighty Warriors walkover, that will be unfair. We are just receiving bad publicity but we are not the worst Zifa board. You cannot judge a person who has a four-year term over six months.”
