Share

FIFA suspended Pakistan from worldwide soccer on Wednesday because of government interference after disputed national federation elections.

"The Bureau took this decision as a result of the fact that the PFF offices and its accounts remain in control of a court-appointed administrator".

The Bureau reached its decision as PFF offices and its accounts remain in control of a court-appointed administrator. The suspension has been ordered relating to the "third party" interference in the management of the national body.

The IPC minister must answer the simple question that why he kept mum on sorry state of PFF affairs, why did he never bother to act when the Federation Internationale de Football Association suspension was looming large.

The Pakistan Football Federation was accused of vote-rigging when Faisal Saleh Hayat was appointed to lead the federation.

The suspension of Pakistan's membership rules out PFF and its associate clubs getting any benefits from any of FIFA or the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) facilities or development and training programmes, with the federation losing all of its membership rights.

"They might be ranked 200 in the world, and mightn't have played a full worldwide for two-and-a-half years, but we all know how risky Pakistan can be at world events", Messi said.

"The suspension has put our footballers' future in danger". In a statement sent to Reuters, Shahid Khokhar, an ally of Hayat, lay the blame for PFF's trouble at the feet of Muhammad Safdar, senior PML-N lawmaker and the son-in-law of recently ousted Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. "It [FIFA] had told us it would suspend us if the political interference did not end", Hayat told Geo News Pakistan.

It is pertinent to mention here that the minister is completely unaware of Pakistan Football Federation situation as it was mentioned time and again that FIFA's suspension on Pakistan is looming large and the government must act quickly or else Pakistan football will suffer.

"If we want to play football, we would have to follow FIFA's laws".
