FIFA president accepts Chiyangwa birthday bash invite

Fifa president Gianni Infantino will visit Zimbabwe next week for Zifa president Philip Chiyangwa’s birthday and Cosafa presidency celebrations.

The same was confirmed by the Infantino in writing:

I will be arriving in Harare on Thursday 23 February 2017 at around 18:00 and leaving on Friday at 18:00. I have no doubt that this visit will help us to lay foundation for further fruitful cooperation and share our personal vision for the continued development of our sports in your country.

The party has caused panic at the Confederation of African Football headquarters as other heads of football associations across the continent have been invited. Incumbent Issa Hayatou fears the conspiracy to dislodge him.

Cosafa has thrown its weight behind Madagascar’s Ahmid Ahmid to take over from the Cameroonian.

Chiyangwa has dismissed the conspiracy and demanded an apology from Hayatou for a letter suggesting there was such a thing.
