CAF President Ahmad Ahmad thanks Egypt for support during elections
Ahmad Ahmad had the chance to thank all Egyptians in an interview on ON Sports during his visit to Egypt.
Moreover, he added that he had not met FIFA president Gianni Infantino during the elections nor had his support.
Ahmad said, “I’d like to thank Egypt and all the Egyptians who supported me, because that gave me strong push when I first launched my campaign,” and continued “The CAF headquarters is in Egypt. Therefore, it was important to get Egypt’s support.”
“Egypt is one of the biggest countries in the continent, it would have been very hard to lose the election having big countries supporting me,” claimed the 57-year-old.
The Malagasy stated that he never doubted getting Egypt’s vote despite the secret voting scheme, and revealed that Egyptian Football Association (EFA) President Hany Abou-Rida played a crucial role in his election.
“Abou-Rida had a huge role in my win of course and I have a great relationship with him,” he concluded.
