Zifa president Cuthbert Dube resigned Friday.

Beleaguered Zimbabwe Football Association president, Cuthbert Dube, has resigned following pressure from the football fraternity, accusing him of failing to properly run soccer in the country.

ZIFA spokesman, Xolisani Gwesela confirmed that Dube has resigned, a day before the Zifa top decision body, the national council, holds an extra-ordinary meeting, Saturday.

Hours before he resigned Friday evening, Zifa councilors urged him to step down saying they will pass a vote of no confidence in him at the council meeting.

Dube was voted Zifa president in 2010 and has been attacked for the manner in which he is handling soccer in the country.
