Two years after the current 2016-2020 term of office at the helm of FAF, a board chaired by Artur Almeida e Silva, the vice chair told ANGOP that they want more time, because they are managing the body  with problems of various kinds, especially financial.

Speaking in the ambit of a three-day work visit to Moxico, the manager rejects the idea that he is asking members in advance for a new term, promising to evaluate, in the end, the work done over four years and then decide the future.

The leader gave an example of the pretension of the creation of the League, which, he says, is unfeasible due to "too much political involvement” still existing in Angolan football.
