African soccer confederation and FIFA vice president Ahmad Ahmad was banned from all football-related activity for five years by the sport’s governing body on Monday over financial misconduct.

The ban was announced during the Madagascan official’s campaign to be re-elected for four more years as the head of African soccer.

The FIFA ethics committee found “Ahmad had breached his duty of loyalty, offered gifts and other benefits, mismanaged funds and abused his position as the CAF President.”

  1. What a disappointment. He promised to be clean than Isa Hayatou, only to end up like this and in the first term?

    I would rather FIFA runs CAF than being subjected to this nonsense.
