ANFA Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Indraman Tuladhar has confirmed the receiving of letter from the FIFA on Tuesday and said that FIFA has asked ANFA to reinstate the three vice presidents — Karma Tshering Sherpa, Bijay Narayan Manandhar and Kishor Rai — along with member Pankaj Bikram Nembang.

FIFA has also asked the association to hold the presidential election as soon as possible to fill the post that has remained vacant since Thapa was banned by FIFA for 10 years on November 16 last year.

ANFA had sacked Sherpa, Manandhar, Rai and Nembang on September 28 a year ago after the dissident group had filed complaints against disgraced former ANFA chief Ganesh Thapa at the Public Accounts Committee of the legislature-parliament.

They had also filed case at the Patan Appellate Court against the annual general assembly called by ANFA, forcing the football governing body to cancel the meeting on the eve of the scheduled date.
