Rasheedat Ajibade of the Super Falcons has been added to the FIFPRO Global Player Council.
The council’s other new members are Enez Mango (Farul Constanta/Kenya) and Marshall Munetsi (Reims/Zimbabwe).
With their accession, the council now has a total of 34 members.
“It’s critical that players’ voices are heard,” said Nigerian forward Ajibade.
“I’m excited to use my platform to assist gamers in Africa and beyond.”
“When it comes to choices that influence our employment, players should be consulted and have a say,” Kenya international Mango stated. “To make a difference, I’ve joined FIFPRO’s Global Player Council.”
The council assists FIFPRO and its 66 affiliated national player associations to represent footballers in negotiations about global issues that directly affect them including the international match calendar, employment standards, the use of personal data, social media abuse, and more.
“Being a part of the Global Player Council means we can help footballers worldwide – such as protecting players against fake agents, or against government interference. I’m eager to get started,” said Reims’ Zimbabwean midfielder Munetsi.
