Published

on

Pavel Cebanu, the President  of the Moldovan Football Federation (MFF), announced his resignation today through a statement published on the official MFF website. Pavel Cebanu has been the head of the MFF for 22 years since 1997.

He mentioned in the note that it wasn’t a spontaneous decision. “Two years ago, before the last MFF Congress I had the intention to step down, but the persistent requests and the full support of the Federation members determined me to continue. Then I told the Executive Committee that I would continue two more years to ensure the start of some projects that were in our program and then I would make a decision,” stated Cebanu.

At the beginning of April, Ziarul de Gardă (ZdG) published an investigation called “Lifetime Bosses at the MFF: Football Business”, which reveals the connections between those who have been in the forefront of Moldovan football, the prosperous businesses they have and the wealth of millions they have built, including through the football activity.

According to ZdG, Pavel Cebanu became the president of MFF in 1997. First he was a football player at the Nistru Chişinău team (now Zimbru Chişinău) between 1972-1986 and later became a coach. He won five times in a row the elections for the MFF leadership, remaining in power for 22 years. Cebanu won several awards and was entitled the best football player in the history of the Moldovan football in 2004.

While being the president of the MFF, Pavel Cebanu has built a true ‘fortress’ of devoted people who were advanced to the key positions at the Federation, some of them being involved in the family business of Cebanu as well.
