Soccer lovers have not been left out of the Antofagasta’s work in Santiago 2023 and that is why they are nominating him for the presidency of the ANFP, even more so given the crisis that national soccer is going through.
The executive director of Santiago 2023, Harold Mayne-Nichollshas received a bunch of congratulations for his outstanding work in the organization of the Pan American and Parapan American Games.
The historic multi-sport event on national soil has had a great reception from the public, with full stadiums, and featuring top-level facilities.
Soccer lovers have not been oblivious to the Antofagasta’s work in Santiago 2023 and that is why they nominate him for the presidency of the ANFPeven more so given the crisis that national football is going through.
Remember that Mayne-Nicholls directed the destinies of Chilean football between 2007 and 2011. He was responsible for the arrival of Marcelo Bielsa to the La Roja bank and during his management Chile returned to the World Cup after 12 years (South Africa 2010).
Asked about the option of a second term in the organization based in Quilín, the journalist also declared in dialogue with the Ya Magazine that “I have no interest or desire”.
In this way, Harold ‘crosses’ the possibility of returning to the ANFP front. “In 2015 or 2016, I don’t remember, I ran to be president again, It went badly for me, no one chose me”, he expressed.
“It makes no sense to apply now, knowing that more or less, the same people who are there today are the ones who were there yesterday… The page has turned,” he added.
However, Mayne-Nicholls is more open to the chance of returning to work at FIFAan organization that disqualified him for seven years in 2015 for his participation in the commission to choose the 2018 and 2022 World Cups.
“If they invited me to teach courses, because I taught courses in more than 40 countries… If they invited me to a talk, yes. But anything else is very difficult, because young people, another generation, another technology come. If they invited me, of course I would tell them that Yeah”, he stated.
