CAF president rejects salary

New African football boss, Ahmad Ahmad, has stated that he will not be taking any salary as President of the Confederation of African Football (CAF).

“I’ve refused a Caf salary for the simple reason it doesn’t respect good administration,” BBC Sport quotes the former Madagascan football chief as saying.

“The salaries of all Caf employees, from administrators to the executive committee and president, all have to be transparent,” he added.

Ahmad rose to become the most powerful African football administrator in March this year after defeating long-serving Issa Hayatou. The Cameroonian administrator had been at the helm of CAF for almost three decades.

 Ahmad who won the polls with the promise to reform CAF has reiterated his position to look at the re-investment of Caf resources to aid the development of football across the continent.
