Bayshakov at the helm in Kazakhstan

Ex-Kairat player and coach Seilda Bayshakov hopes his nation will reach "new heights" as he embarks on a four-year term as Football Federation of Kazakhstan president.

Seilda Bayshakov has been elected as the new Football Federation of Kazakhstan (KFF) president for a four-year term.

The former Kairat player and coach succeeds Yerlan Kozhagapanov, who stepped down in October. Bayshakov took the position on a temporary basis, but has now been confirmed in office until 28 November 2020.

"I sincerely appreciate your faith," said Bayshakov after the election. "For my part, I will make every effort to bring about the comprehensive development of football in our country. I am confident that we will be able to achieve serious objectives and reach new heights."
