ZIFA presidential candidate, Trevor Carelse Juul says electing a leader with a vision that goes beyond personal interests will be critical in steering Zimbabwean football forward.
Juul was on Friday cleared to run for the post of ZIFA president and the ex-ZIFA boss has set in motion attempts to land the most powerful position in Zimbabwean football.
In a video posted on social media, Juul urged ZIFA councillors to vote for a leader with good track record.
“We don’t want people who use football for their own benefit, let us have people who love the game, who can achieve success, we have a track record of success, support us now, God has a plan, I believe this is his plan, and I am asking you all now, let’s do this together,” he said in the video.
Some supporters organisations have been challenging the legitimacy of Juul as a candidate but his election agent, Stanley Makombe said there is need to respect the electoral committee’s decision.
With the next two to three weeks going to be a vital period in determining who wins the ZIFA polls, Makombe has expressed concern vote buying could jeopardise the legitimacy of the election process.
Juul who lost the last election to Cuthbert Dube is expected in the country next week.
Philip Chiyangwa has in the last few weeks travelled around the country rallying support for the December 5 poll .Also in the race for ZIFA presidency is James Takavada and Leslie Gwindi.
