Jérôme Efong Nzolo, four-time Referee of the Year in Belgium, will Wednesday his candidacy as president of the Gabonese football federation (FEGAFOOT) announce. That he confirmed Monday to Belga.
“It is very important for me. The experience that I have in Europe and especially in Belgium have gained, I want to pass”, says Nzolo about the reason for his candidacy. He was born in Gabon, but it was between 1996 and 2015 in Belgium as a referee active. Three years ago, he arrived not more by his physical testing.
Also, the incumbent president, Pierre Alain Mounguengui, is a former referee. Or he was again the candidate is yet to be discovered. “The election is in principle in march, and this week will all the candidates identify themselves. I expect at least five or six candidates, and on the basis thereof shall also the current president to make a decision. My own candidacy is not yet official. That is until Wednesday at the press conference in Libreville.”
Since 2015 holds Nzolo a post on the Gabonese Ministry of Sports. He helped, for example, the Africa Cup of 2017 to organize. “My intention is to make the sport in Gabon to move forward, and also in professional football is needed. Then I want me a moment to concentrate. Therefore, I propose me as a candidate for the football association.”
