“Alois is a former footballer but it doesn’t mean that he cannot run football in the country as long as he has the knowledge and capability, he’s not different from those who are running the game at the moment,” Mucherahowa told the Daily News on Sunday.
“What I will do for now is to wait and see what other potential candidates have to offer even if they never played football as long as they have good plans I will support them and if they’re former footballers with magnificent plans then I will support them. All we want is for football to be the winner at the end of the day.”
There is an ongoing police probe into the election that saw Kamambo come into power by defeating Phillip Chiyangwa in 2018.
“Bribery is a cancer that we need to do away with in football so my worry is will Alois be able to overcome this hurdle?” he said.
“It’s known that most players do not have the capacity to play this dirty game and bribe the councillors. I think there should be a better way of choosing Zifa presidents on an even and fair platform as opposed to this current system.”
“Personally, I have known Alois as a youngster; I have got no problem with him raising his hand to be counted as the next Zifa president. I’m very supportive of any former footballer willing to lead our football, particularly anyone who has played at the highest level,” Moyo told the Daily News on Sunday.
“I’m happy for Alois for as long as he has the requisite administration background I don’t see why it should be difficult for him to get the support he’s looking for. I’m sure he will come and introduce other administrative courses for former footballers as well because we all can’t be coaches, we need that diversity.”
“It’s a step in the right direction and the time for footballers to lead the association now; sometimes you need to take the bull by the horns which is what Alois has decided to do,” Phiri said.
