COLUMNIST

Article 18 of the CAF statutes reads: “A candidate for the CAF presidency shall have played an active role in football (as a player or as an official within Fifa, CAF or a CAF-affiliated national association or within one of its affiliated members) for at least two of the last five years preceding his candidacy.”

What’s interesting is that it is Safa that put forward the name of a local club boss to challenge for the CAF presidency. How ironic, because Safa does not allow club bosses to contest for its own presidency.
