The newly appointed president of the Football Association of Zambia (FAZ), Kalusha Bwalya, has been congratulated by World Soccer Governing body (FIFA) boss Sepp Blatter.
The Swiss assured the African Legend of FIFA’s support in his new role as head of Zambian football.
According to reports from kickoff.com, Sepp Blatter in a congratulatory letter challenged the former African Footballer of the Year award recipient to fully utilize his vast experience as player, coach and administrator in lifting Zambian football, and said he was looking forward to discussing relevant development projects with Kalusha and his new Executive grouping soon.
Blatter also added that the new FAZ boss now had in his hands a complex but exciting task of turning around the fortunes of Zambian football.
“Your incredible experience as a player who played all around the world, as a coach of the national team and as a FAZ vice-president represents an amazing asset for the achievement of your new mission which is the fulfillment of the dreams of millions of football lovers in Zambia,” Blatter said
“You now have in front of you the complex but exciting task to help the football in your country to reach new heights and to regain the international recognition it deserves, and in the task you can rely on my support and on FIFA assistance.”
Kalusha was last weekend appointed as the new FAZ President, defeating the incumbent President Teddy Mulonga in a landslide victory.
