PAVING WAY FOR THE FUTURE: Moïse Katumbi Preparing to Retire From Football

Having been at the helm of the most successful football club in the country for over two decades, Moïse Katumbi is preparing to step aside and give chance to the new generation.

TP Mazembe President Moïse Katumbi has revealed he is planning to retire from football after being at the helm of the Lubumbashi giants for the past 27 years.

Speaking after the club’s 2-1 win over Petro de Luanda in the Angolan capital last Sunday, Katumbi expressed delight with the team’s victory that propelled the club to the semi-finals of the TotalEnergies CAF Champions League.

Katumbi also seized the opportunity to announce his upcoming retirement from the game as looks to give chance to youthful leadership at the club.

“I still have experience. I’ve been involved in football for more or less 40 years, including 27 years at the head of TP Mazembe. Soon I will retire from football. I am already over 25 years old and I believe I am the oldest president on the continent. It is time to give way to youth,” Katumbi told reporters in the Angolan capital.

While at the helm of the club, Katumbi has steered Mazembe to a staggering three CAF Champions League titles as well as a CAF Confederation Cup title.
