Anouma Wants Confederation Of Africa Football To Have A Term Limit For The Presidency
FIFA Executive Committee Member Jacques Anouma has "called for a strict term limit for the presidency of the Confederation of African Football," according to the BBC. The Ivory Coast Football Federation former president is "hoping to become" the next president of CAF. Cameroon's Issa Hayatou has held the position since '88. Anouma told the BBC's World Football show that the game in Africa cannot carry on being "run like a fiefdom controlled by a village chief." He believes that the next CAF president should serve a "maximum of three four-year terms." Anouma: "I believe three mandates of four years will be the right thing; 12 years will be enough for anyone to put in place his programme. If we do that it's going to solve the problem because people will not be able to last longer than they should" (BBC, 9/20).
