By Olaoluwa Aro

Vice chairman of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF)s Technical and Development committee, Alhaji Ahmed Yusuf Fresh has charged the newly elected president of the Confederation of African Football (CAF), Ahmad Ahmad, to change the current state of African football from this unattractive state to an attractive one.

Fresh made the call in a chat from Khartoum in Sudan where he led the delegation of Rivers United FC for the reversed fixture of the on-going CAF Champions League.

“Let me first salute, congratulate the president of Madagascar football association, Mr Ahmad Ahmad, for his doggedness, having the pertinence, tenaciousness and strict believe in his ability against the immediate past President, Issa Hayatou.

Its only a courageous being that can achieve such feat despite the antics of Issa Hayatou, Fresh said.

On the victory of Mr Amaju Pinnick, the Niger state Football Association chairman also praised and appreciates his determination to defeat the ‘sugar mouthed’ Mr Anjorin Moucharafou of Republic of Benin.

‘Let me raise my cap for my president, the newly executive member of CAF for not allowing the media noise from the former opponent, Anjorin Moucharafou, affect his goals and ambition.

“Pinnick is truly a focused person, we are behind him any time any day.’ Fresh confidently sounded.

The revered football administrator however advised both men to change the way things are done in CAF by bringing innovations, allowing the world to feel, see the impacts of change in CAF like it was recently achieved in FIFA.
