KARACHI: Senate chairman Sadiq Sanjrani has constituted an eight-member committee to work for the development of football in the country.

The committee will hold its first meeting in Islamabad on Wednesday (today). The Senate Chairman is the convener of the committee which also includes Senators Shibli Faraz, Mohammad Ali Saif, Dilawar Khan, Ahmed Khan, and Asad Ashraf, Mirza Afridi and Pakistan Football Federation (PFF) president Ashfaq Hussain Shah.

“The basic purpose is to work for football development,” Sanjrani said. The PFF president Ashfaq told ‘The News’ on Tuesday that there was only one aim of the committee and that was football development.

“Nothing but football development will be on the radar of the committee,” Ashfaq said. “Tomorrow we will hold a meeting and I am confident that we will be able to take Pakistan football to new heights,” said Ashfaq.

He said that the PFF had started coaches and managers clinics in Lahore. “You know the situation. It’s a hard task before me and InshaAllah we will succeed,” said Ashfaq, who also served as District Football Association (DFA) Peshawar president for several years.

The new PFF was formed in December last year as a result of the elections held under the instructions of the Supreme Court. Although FIFA does not recognise the new body, it is recognised by Pakistan Sports Board (PSB). FIFA recognises Faisal Saleh Hayat-led body.
