World’s football governing body FIFA, and the Sierra Leone government are to redesign and release a new joint roadmap in a bid to resolve the ongoing impasse surrounding the country’s football.
Following a productive meeting in Zurich on Wednesday between Fifa and a high-powered Sierra Leone delegation led by the Vice President, a communiqué on the way forward is expected to be out today.
A source who attended the meeting in Zurich has confirmed to FootballSierraLeone.net that the expected communiqué will be the only legal document in resolving the football impasse in the country.
It’s still unclear whether the SLFA boss Isha Johnsen and Sec-gen Chris Kamara will be reinstated as stipulated by Fifa.
“The suspension will be lifted once the SLFA and its recognised leadership have confirmed to Fifa that the SLFA administration, premises, accounts and communication channels are under their control once again,” Fifa reiterated.
Fifa suspended Sierra Leone from international football two weeks ago because of alleged government interference in the running of the country’s football association.
Confederation of African Football (CAF) cancelled Sierra Leone 2019 Africa Cup of Nations doubleheader against Ghana due to the FIFA ban on the West African nation.
However, CAF did not state whether Ghana would be awarded a win for the suspended Kumasi qualifier that was slated for October 11 or if Sierra Leone will be allowed to continue in the qualifiers when they are reinstated by FIFA.
