FIFA Banned Bwalya Put Up A Fight
Former Zambia coach Kalusha Bwalya has been banned for two years by FIFA, but he has vowed to put up a fight to clear himself of all wrongdoing.
FIFA said the investigation into Bwalya, an executive committee member for the Confederation of African Football, “focused principally on benefits that Mr Bwalya had received from Mr Bin Hammam”.
He has also been fined CHF100,000 ($100,600), FIFA confirmed in a statement released on Friday.
But the 1988 African Player of the Year said he has instructed his lawyers to immediately appeal FIFA’s decision.
“I have never done and will never do anything to bring the beautiful game to disrepute and stand by the facts provided by me to the committee.” He said in a statement.
Bwalya was also president of the Football Association of Zambia.
