Mwenda said these remarks recently after holding a meeting with a group of about 40 s0ccer legends.
In his remarks, he said legends have an important role to play as they are role models are technically sound to help us take the game to greater height. I would like them to help in football management and motivate the young ones as most of them played at the highest level. Beyond that, they also had good and bad experiences that are essential in career talks to blossoming talents.
“Some of these legends are involved in coaching while others are doing nothing. So I urged them to take part in the development of the game because football can improve tremendously if we take everybody on board, “he said.
FAM will go for elections in December this year where Mwenda is expected to challenge the incumbent president Walter Nyamilandu Manda who is yet to openly declare whether he is contesting or not.
Now according to reports, it indicates that Nyamilandu will contest and he has already set up an internal committee [Names withheld] to steer his campaign bid.
