LAHORE: (UrduPoint/Pakistan Point News-Jan 1st, 2021) Pakistan Football Federation (PFF) General Secretary Manizeh Zainli resigned from office, a statement issued by the federation confirmed.

Taking to Twitter, Manizeh Zainli said: “I am stepping down as the PFF General Secretary willfully, despite several requests by the PFF Normalisation Committee Chairman Mr. Muneer Ahmed Khan Sadhana and other colleagues,”.

Earlier, Pakistan Football Federation thanked Ms Zainli for rendering services for development of the football in the country during her tenure.

She was appointed earlier this year in February and became the country’s first ever female general secretary for PFF.
