Salulani Phiri handed four match ban…Two months suspended

The Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) Disciplinary Committee has handed Sensational Zanaco midfielder Salulani Phiri a four month ban.


The committee has also fined the former Polokwane City midfield workhorse a K20, 000 fine.

Phiri will only serve two months after the committee considered his previous good disciplinary record that has seen his sentence partially suspended in line with Article 33 of the Disciplinary Code.

“The respondent shall be on probation for six months and shall be observed not to commit a similar offence, failure to which the two months suspended shall automatically be activated,” reads part of the Disciplinary Committee’s verdict.

“Further, the player is required to visit two schools of his choice in Lusaka and talk to school children about the need to respect authorities in sport and opponents for the duration of one hour session at each of the two schools. Video proof of these activities should be presented to the Registrar’s office before the end of the FAZ 2022/23 season.”

Salulani pushed the referee after being shown a red card in a Week 22 MTN Super League match at Heroes Stadium against Prison Leopards.

Phiri retains the right to appeal the decision of the Committee within 72 hours notification of the decision in terms of Articles 119, 120 and 121 of the Code.
