Fernandez attracted to FIFA

Gelson Fernandez will step down as vice-chairman of Sion after just one year and join FIFA on August 1. There, the 35-year-old will be involved in the development of African football as director of member associations in Africa. It was a “complex decision” to leave his father Sion’s club. “But this offer represents a huge opportunity for me, as I am a native of a small island off the coast of Africa,” Fernandez, who hails from Cape Verde, was quoted as saying in a statement from the state of Valais. Planning for the future of football is a challenge that was difficult for him to refuse at his age.
