FIFA Bans CAF Chief, Ahmad Ahmad For 5 Years
FIFA’s Independent Ethics Committee has banned the president of the Confederation of African Football (CAF), Ahmad Ahmad, from all football-related activities for five years.
He was banned on Monday due to financial misconduct. The sport’s governing body issued the ban amid the Madagascan official’s campaign to be re-elected for a second four-year term as the head of his continent’s confederation.
As a result of this, the ambition now lies in tatters after the FIFA ethics committee found that “Ahmad had breached his duty of loyalty, offered gifts and other benefits, mismanaged funds and abused his position as the CAF President.”
The 60-year-old was also fined €185,000 ($220,000) for “the organization and financing of an Umrah pilgrimage to Mecca, his involvement in CAF’s dealings with the sports equipment company and other activities.”Follow us on Instagram @sofovilla | Follow us on Twitter @sofovilla | Like our page on Facebook via @sofovillamedia
