On the side-lines of the Meeting in Cairo, Egypt for the coordination of the FIFA Football Development Program, we, Presidents of the Africa and Caribbean Zonal associations raise our voice against the actions of a certain European press aimed at denigrating and slandering the President and the administration of FIFA.
Faced with this scandalous campaign, we want through this message mark our distance vis-à-vis the abject behaviour and false allegations aiming at discrediting the achievements and positive changes introduced in football by President Gianni Infantino since his ascent to the top of FIFA.
We are proud to express our confidence and unwavering support for his clean-up policy of World football.
We will fight with the last energy this campaign of malicious denigration campaign.
