THE Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) says former FIFA referee Derrick Kafuli emerged as an ideal candidate to fill up the position of referees’ manager given the delicate process of restoring the integrity of the refereeing space.
Kafuli’s appointment as acting referees manager comes in the wake of the suspension slapped on Aziph Banda.
“We have appointed former FIFA Referee Derrick Kafuli as acting referees manager. Kafuli’s credentials make him an ideal candidate in our quest to rebuild confidence in the refereeing fraternity,” said FAZ general secretary Reuben Kamanga in a statement released yesterday by communications manager Sydney Mungala.
