FIFA Ethics and Regulations Watch (FERW) strongly supports Gianni Infantino’s support for the dysfunctional African football confederation.
Last month, FIFA announced that it would take the unprecedented step of overseeing the complete reorganization of CAF, which is the largest of FIFA’s six continental bodies. As part of the plan, FIFA secretary general Samoura has moved to Egypt as FIFA general delegate for Africa to lead the cleanup for six months starting Aug. 1.
The deal has been portrayed by FIFA and CAF president Ahmad Ahmad as a partnership.
FIFA President Gianni Infantino refused the latest criticism by former FIFA official Sepp Blatter of his ongoing mission in CAF.
As Mr Infantino stated,
“I have heard about colonization, that FIFA is colonizing Africa again. What does it mean, colonialization? I don’t know. It’s not part of my vocabulary. But I know what it means to work, to team up. … We all suffer when we see what is going on here (at CAF).”
In light of this news, FERW calls on current and former FIFA officials to support Mr Infantino’s initiative in CAF.
Furthermore, FERW invites all football clubs and associations officials to work together towards helping football federations operate efficiently and grow worldwide.
