The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has today in Rabat announced that the organisation has got a new president.



The new president is the sole candidate, he is from South Africa named Patrice Motsepe and he was confirmed and pleaded for unity as he seeks to fix the troubled organisation.

"Africa needs collective wisdom, but also the exceptional talent and wisdom of every (national football association) president and every member nation," he said.

"When we all work together, football in Africa will experience success and growth that it has not enjoyed in the past."

Africa has suffered serious setbacks in recent years with all five qualifiers for the 2018 World Cup in Russia eliminated after the first round -- the worst showing in 36 years.

Last November, Malagasy Ahmad Ahmad became the first CAF president to be banned by FIFA, with a five-year suspension for "governance issues" cut to two after appealing to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
