Ahmad won the election in the Ethiopian capital by 34 votes to Hayatou’s 20, official results showed.

Ahmad had challenged Hayatou and promising change After a discreet playing and coaching career Ahmad Ahmad took the reins of the Madagascar football federation in 2003 and on Thursday challenges long-serving Issa Hayatou for the African Football Confederation (CAF) presidency.


Hayatou, who has been in charge for 29 years, and Ahmad go head to head in Addis Ababa seeking a four-year term as African football boss.

Hayatou, who is also the senior vice-president of global football body FIFA, offers continuity and experience while Ahmad favours change.

In an interview, Ahmad told AFP in the Malagasy capital Antananarivo, “If people want change, there is no other choice. It is only me who dares to run against Hayatou,”

“My program is the reform of the administration of CAF to prevent politics interfering with the organisation of the confederation,” said the 57-year-old father of two.
