Punjab Football Association's (PFA) former vice-president Rana Ziaur Rehman has said that in order to prevent further damage to Pakistan football, Prime Minister Imran Khan should directly intervene into the power struggle within the Pakistan Football Federation that has brought the country on the verge of FIFA suspension.
Rana requested the PM and IPC Minister Dr Fehmida Mirza to get the FIFA Football House in Lahore vacated by “the occupiers and hand it over to FIFA-installed Normalisation Committee” led by Haroon Malik.
“The attack and taking over of the FIFA House by Ashfaq Hussain group has been bringing bad name to the country across the world and Pakistan football is also on verge of ban by FIFA. The ultimate sufferers will be no one but Pakistani footballers and match officials.
“Pakistani footballers deserve better treatment and facilities, who are suffering due to power game of a few people. They cannot take part in any international tournament if FIFA bans Pakistan,” he is quoted as saying by The News.
