New Caf President Ahmad Refuses To Accept A Salary



The new Confederation of African Football Caf President, Ahmad Ahmad, says he has refused to accept a salary from African football's governing body.
His election in March ended Cameroonian Issa Hayatou's 29-year reign.

He told BBCSport that he refused a salary for the simple reason that it doesn't respect good administration.
The Caf boss added that the salaries of all Caf employees, from administrators to the executive committee and president, all have to be transparent.
The 57-year-old from Madagascar held his first senior Caf meetings on Monday ahead of the Fifa Congress on Thursday 11 May.
Key among the topics being discussed are how to reform Caf.
Ahmad, who goes by a single name, says there is much work to be done - in lots of areas - to make Caf work as it should.
Ahmad also spoke about giving more power to the presidents of the individual federations, describing them as the Sovereign Body - who have to make the big decisions for the confederation.
Ahmad has promised to arrange a new Caf congress in due course in order to validate the proposed changes.
He also wants to look at the re-investment of Caf resources to aid the development of football across the continent, stressing that Caf is not out to make money to enrich itself.
