“Dear President,

Please pass on my own personal congratulations, along with those of the whole football family, to Istiqlol Dushanbe on their performance. A national victory is a wonderful occasion and an opportunity to draw satisfaction from a job well done.

I know that behind this success are the belief and effort of everyone involved. This is a true team  victory, and all of you deserve to share in the accolades: the players and coach of course, but also the technical and medical staff and, not least, the loyal fans. The dynamism and commitment of the Istiqlol Dushanbe team have enabled them to win this title.

Football is proving more than ever that it can transcend traditional boundaries to become a real driver of development. It enables players at all levels to develop their individual skills, tactical understanding and personal dynamism, while strengthening team spirit. Football truly is a school for life and I am convinced that everyone, and in particular the young people of today, can benefit from playing football on both a social and personal level. That is why I urge them all in Istiqlol Dushanbe to continue their work, leading the way on this path of success”.
