Moyo resigns from Footballers’ Union of Zimbabwe


Footballers’ Union of Zimbabwe (Fuz) treasurer More Moyo has resigned amid revelations he has been frustrated by the other executive members.

The union’s secretary-general Paul Gundani confirmed to NewsDay Sport yesterday Moyo tendered his resignation letter to the union president Desmond Maringwa on Wednesday last week.

“We had an executive meeting on the last week of December to review progress we made during the year and like any organisation we had our house cleaning issues.

We discussed a lot of issues including the protocols that need to be followed when dealing with our clients especially the Press.

“The other big issue which was discussed was the way members of the union should operate. We agreed no member of the union can also act as player agent. Our mandate is to represent players and we can’t be seen managing them at the same time.

“What image would that give to clubs whose players we are representing? It is after that meeting Moyo sent me an email stating he could not work in that environment, so he was resigning. We were all surprised and we are meeting tomorrow (today) to map the way forward,” said Gundani.

Moyo refused to discuss the issue saying he would only open up after today’s meeting.

“I cannot comment now. Let’s talk tomorrow after the meeting. A lot can change during the meeting. You never know,” is all Moyo said yesterday.

Moyo is believed to be managing Dynamos left back Ocean Mushure.

Gundani has already notified Zifa and the Premier Soccer League (PSL) of the development, in an apparent show the union had accepted the resignation.

Read part of the letter written to Zifa and the PSL: “We write to advise you that Mr More Moyo resigned through his own accord as treasurer of our organisation with effect from the 5th of January 2012. He no longer represents the interests of the Footballers’ Union of Zimbabwe. Please advise your affiliates accordingly.”

Fuz leadership consists of Maringwa, Gundani, vice-president Herbert Dick and Nomsa Moyo, a committee member.
