Hayatou re-elected CAF president

Issa Hayatou has been re-elected unopposed as president of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) for a final four-year term.

The 66-year-old Hayatou was the only candidate and was retained unanimously at a vote in Marrakech, Morocco, yesterday.

Fifa president Sepp Blatter then presented the Cameroonian with a special certificate to commemorate his 25 years at the helm of the CAF.

Earlier this month, Fifa executive committee member Jacques Anouma was barred from being a candidate to lead African football, losing his legal challenge to stand for election against Hayatou.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport dismissed Anouma’s appeal against CAF, which refused to accept his election bid after he was made ineligible by rule changes engineered by Hayatou.

Hayatou challenged Blatter for the Fifa leadership in 2002 and lost.
