WINDHOEK, 27 DEC (NAMPA) – The Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) president, Čeferin Aleksander, arrived in Namibia on Wednesday morning at Hosea Kutako International Airport and was met by the Namibia Football Association (NFA) General Manager, Tim Isaacs.

Aleksander will be in the country from 27 December to 05 January 2018 with his family and two other families he invited along for the trip.

Speaking to Nampa upon his arrival, Alexander said he was in Namibia five years ago with his friends on a private visit, and the beauty of Namibia captured his heart.

“I believe Namibia is one of the most beautiful countries in the world, hence I decided to bring my family here for holidays,” he said.

He added that he will be meeting the NFA president, Frans Mbidi, for dinner where ‘issues related to football will definitely be discussed’.

“There are possibilities of working together with the NFA, but at this point in time, let me meet the president first (Mbidi) before I talk to the media about our discussions,” he said.

Mbidi is expected to attend the dinner with Aleksander and other leading football personalities in Namibia.
