Bility Boasts ‘Surprise Support’ for FIFA Presidential Race

first_imgWith 75 days to the deadline of registration of candidates in the FIFA Presidential Bid, Liberia’s football chief, Musa Bility, has revealed that 13 countries have assured him of his nomination to replace Sepp Blatter.Mr. Bility said instead of the traditional five recommendations from member countries, he has received a surprise support of 13 countries up to yesterday and claimed that he is a potential candidate.Though, he failed to reveal the nations that pledged support to his nomination, as part of his pioneering strategy, he said they are from Europe and the Caribbean.He made the disclosure yesterday at the Headquarters of the LFA, attended by scores of sports journalists.“I received support and I’m surprised of it – I need five countries in writing – but up now I have support from 13 countries – and I don’t want to expose these countries as part of our strategy,” Mr. Bility said.“I am running for FIFA president that wouldn’t change – some people have limited vision and they want me to also have that limited vision – it’s good to think big and I’m running for FIFA President.”“There would be stumbles, but I wouldn’t be deterred, but would try to do whatever it takes – but the only painful thing is what comes out of my country,” Bility indicated.The LFA president stated that he is and strong confident and wouldn’t change his presidential bid.Mr. Bility, 48, said that he knows the “math and know what to go for the kill,” arguing that he has always been on the winning side.In the 2006 and 2011 Presidential Elections, Mr. Bility supported the Unity Party led government of President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf and in the latter was the chairman of the mobilization campaign for Montserrado County – and in both elections, President Sirleaf won.In the 2014 Special Senatorial Elections, Mr. Bility campaigned against the UP in favor of Sen. George Weah.Mr. Bility reiterated that his meeting with CAF, which was declined – was not about CAF endorsing him.Bility said the CAF meeting was an honor to gain their moral support, because their support cannot translate into votes.He stressed that it was merely a privilege to have had the opportunity to talk to the entire CAF Executive Committee, to answer questions – concerns, admirations – all the issues that are wrong with football, – but it was considered only an opportunity to explain his platform for the football top post.“I would love for CAF to endorse me but if on the 28th of October, CAF doesn’t support me, I would only salute them and move on,” Mr. Bility said. Meanwhile, Bility said though President Sirleaf endorsed his candidacy evidence of the appeal by Deputy Information Minister Isaac Jackson to Liberians to rally their support for him, there are many Liberians who think he shouldn’t run for the presidency.“There are many of you who don’t want me to dream my own dream – it’s my right to run, but most Liberians think I’m running to represent the country, so I shouldn’t run – but it’s wrong – I am running as Musa Bility from Liberia,” Bility said.Meanwhile, besides Bility, four persons have also registered their interest, they include: Michel Platini, President of UEFA; Netherlands Football Federation president Michael van Praag; Chung Mong-joon, former Fifa vice-president and Luis Figo, former Real Madrid Player.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

AFC sidelined by President again

first_imgGECOM Commissioner post…decision is an injustice – party leader…Granger says his selection was “fit and proper”Leader of the Alliance For Change (AFC), Raphael Trotman, has said that the Party is disappointed that President David Granger had overlooked its nominee for the position of Commissioner on the Guyana Elections Commission and had gone on to appoint Working People’s Alliance member Desmond Trotman for the post. The position became available after APNU nominee Sandra Jones passed away over the weekend.Raphael TrotmanThe AFC Head told reporters that the AFC feels it has been meted out an injustice, since it was promised the post.“On the other hand, the AFC as a party, I can tell you that we are pretty disturbed and disappointed that it was not chosen again to name the replacement. This is an ongoing saga; it has been ongoing for about 8 years between the Opposition parties,” he said.“We (the AFC) have been promised the position for some time, and we had really hoped that, having been seen as a worthy partner in the Coalition, we would have been seen worthy to name one of our ranks to (that) position,” Raphael Trotman explained.AFC Chairman Khemraj Ramjattan had earlier this week revealed that President David Granger had requested the party to present a name to fill this vacant post and Williams had been suggested. He had noted that should the President, for some reason, not find favour with Williams, the party’s alternative nominee would be Beverley Alert, a former AFC spokesperson.The AFC has always pressed to have representation on the Elections Commission, especially given that the party had representation in Parliament, where it once held five seats, and then seven seats subsequently.Desmond Trotman being presented with his Instrument of Appointment by President David GrangerThe party’s executive committee has released a statement supporting its leader’s expression of dissatisfaction.“Further, acknowledging that 65% of the electorate is under the age of 40 years, the AFC believes that the appointment of the GECOM commissioner should have taken this salient point into consideration. In this regard, the rank and file members of the AFC have expressed reservation about the appointment, and were expecting the new commissioner to be a youth or a woman, as was proposed by the party,” the statement read.The party added that this sidelining and backpedalling by the APNU reinforces the call for review of the Cummingsburg Accord, which is scheduled for review after midnight on February 13, 2018, when the three-year period comes to an end.“There is a requirement to review the Accord after 3 years, and (those) 3 years will expire on February 13 at midnight. So it is well within the rights of the AFC to request that, and I have no complaints against that,” President David Granger has said.Responding to that Party’s disappointment, Granger has said it was up to his judgement to make the selection, and he has considered all the nominees, and Desmond Trotman prevailed as the “fit and proper” person.“The Coalition is a coalition of 6 parties, and every party was asked to make a nomination, and they did. Every party made nominations, even the PNC. It is up to my judgment, and I am empowered under the Constitution to exercise my judgment on this matter, and I believe that when all the nominees are looked at, Mr Trotman is the fittest,” the President told reporters.Desmond Trotman, who is 72 years old, has been chosen over younger nominees such as Trevor Williams and Chairman of the Georgetown Public Hospital’s Board, Attorney Kesaundra Alves. Just recently, following an appeal by Youth Ambassadors in Parliament, Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo stood and told the ambassadors that the coalition Government is one for the youths.The coalition won the May 2015 general elections on the premise of providing opportunities for the advancement of youths; and two and a half years later, it is yet to deliver.The Guyana Elections Commission has six Commissioners. The Constitution allows the President to have three nominees on the Commission based on his own judgement; the other three are to be appointed based on the judgement of the Opposition.Charles Corbin, Desmond Trotman and Vincent Alexander are the Government’s commissioners; while opposition People’s Progressive Party Civic commissioners are Bibi Shaddick, Robeson Benn and Sase Gunraj.last_img read more

The smiles are back at Wazito, says Ouna

first_img0Shares0000Wazito FC assistant coach Frank Ouna reacts on the bench during the Kenyan Premier League match against Kariobangi Sharks on November 25, 2019. PHOTO/Wazito FC/TwitterNAIROBI, Kenya, Nov 27 – Frank Ouna is confident that Wazito will be able to put their season back on track, saying the ‘smiles are back’ in the team after he made a second coming at the club following the firing of the previous technical bench.Ouna aided Wazito to their first ever top tier promotion but left soon after to join KCB. He made a return to the fold early this week as assistant coach after previous boss Melis Medo was fired following poor results in his first four games in charge.“It is positive to see that the smiles are back and the players are playing with confidence. Everyone is enjoying and against Kariobangi Sharks you could see that everyone wants to be involved and everyone wants the ball,” Ouna stated.Ouna will be joined in the new look Wazito coaching team by former AFC Leopards and Sofapaka boss Stewart Hall whose last assignment was in Ethiopia with St. George. Hall will be the new boss at the club and will be tasked with reviving the side.“We have had a conversation with him and basically we are two people who are on the same line of thinking. I look forward to working with him and getting the team back on track. We are not in a good position and we have to work to rise back again,” stated the tactician.Hall will be Wazito’s third coach in 11 games, a new remarkable record of hiring and firing in the country’s top flight.Fred Ambani who helped the team get their slot back in the Premier League was fired alongside Technical Director Stanley Okumbi and in their place, Medo who has previously coached Sofapaka and Mount Kenya United came in.Former Wazito FC head coach Fred Ambani on the bench during a past Kenyan Premier League match. PHOTO/Wazito FC/TwitterHowever, the American tactician could not last long at the club as after just four games, he was shown the door.Ouna and Hall have a huge task ahead of them, uniting a team that has not seem to be dancing to the same tune since the season began.A spendthrift nature over the pre-season transfer window saw them bring on board a myriad of former and current stars, and the failure to build a team around them has seen the club win only two of their opening 11 games of the campaign.They will look on to the next fixture with a bit of hope as they face a Chemelil Sugar side that has struggled both on and off the pitch this season. The Sugar Millers have picked just one point from 10 matches in a 1-1 draw with Kisumu All Stars.It is a match that Ouna and Hall will fancy to get the team back in bounce and head into the top half of the standings.“We need to continue working because the 0-0 draw with Sharks was just one step. We need to get our confidence back and start playing good football. It is a journey which I believe will lead us somewhere good,” Ouna stated further.0Shares0000(Visited 22 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Midfielder reveals regret over switch from Southampton to Liverpool

first_imgLiverpool midfielder Adam Lallana revealed he regrets how his summer switch from Southampton to Anfield transpired last summer, but claims he did not force a move away from his former club.The 26-year-old was one of three Saints players signed by Brendan Rodgers in the summer, with Dejan Lovren and Rickie Lambert also brought in to the Merseyside club.The Reds made three separate bids for Lallana before a fee of £25million was agreed, and the England international admitted the move will have left a “sour taste” among some of Southampton’s supporters.“I’m not stupid enough to think the way I left didn’t leave a sour taste in a few people’s mouths,” he told the BBC.“I regret the way I left. I regret bits and pieces of how it happened and it got nasty. It was sad the way it happened.“What is true is that when I knew of Liverpool’s interest and that they had put a bid in, I did say to the club it would be my wish if they could negotiate a fee for me to move on.“Not for one second did I say I wouldn’t play for the club again. I’m man enough to say it was my choice and my decision for me to move on.Lallana missed Liverpool’s 2-1 victory on the opening weekend of the Premier League season, and claimed his absence may have been a “blessing in disguise” due to his emotional attachment to Southampton where he spent 12 years.“It’s still not sunk in that I’m going to be playing against Southampton,” he added.“I think it was a blessing in disguise that I was injured for the first game.“Even being in the crowd watching that day I just felt really emotional so to have been out there would have been way too soon.“The rawness of it all has got easier over the past six months.“I’ve got huge respect for the club; part of me doesn’t even know how I’m going to play. It’s all a bit surreal.“I just have to be professional and play well for Liverpool. I’ve got too much respect to celebrate [if he scores].” 1 Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana last_img read more
