Caf secretary general resigns without giving an explanation6 years ago
Hicham El Amrani the Confederation of African Football’s (Caf) secretary general resigned on Sunday without giving reasons for his decision. The 37-year old El Amrani had been the Caf secretary-general for the past six years. He was Issa Hayatou’s right-hand man and his resignation comes barely a fortnight after Issa Hayatou was ousted from power when he lost the CAF presidency.
El-Amrani was involved in a war of words with Zifa and Cosafa president Phillip Chiyangwa in the run-up to the elections. El-Amrani accused Chiyangwa of attempting to undermine and destabilise Caf after Chiyangwa organised a party with Fifa President Gianni Infantino.
