“Today’s meeting is a follow-up to our first meeting held in Rabat on the evening of my election as CAF President. What is essential is that we must all share the ambition to make African football more competitive at the global level. Together with your GS Mr. Veron, we have the right person and the expertise to give the administration the necessary impetus. We must keep the promises we made to the football community, and I know we will leave a great legacy for this continent.”
