ZIFA has apologized for Zimbabwe’s expulsion from the 2018 World Cup qualifiers.

Last week Fifa booted Zimbabwe out of the upcoming qualifiers for the quadrennial global football showcase following failure to pay former coach Jose Claudinei Georgini also known as Valinhos.

Fifa had twice warned Zifa of possible sanctions but were ignored.

“It is with a heavy heart that we apologize to the nation for the sad development which we are currently seized with managing,” said Zifa chief executive officer Jonathan Mashingaidze.

“In our appeal to Fifa, we indicated that we are keen to service Georgini’s debt and other all our debts but liquidity issues still limit our abilities to do as such at the rate the debtors might expect.

“To the nation and the whole football family, all we ask for is support and patience as we still believe that unity is the only asset which can take us out of the current hiccup and to the next level.”

Zifa has since been advised by Fifa to engage Valinhos for the ban to be overturned.
