The president of the Confederation of African Football (CAF), Issa Hayatou, has called for the organisation’s 54 members to vote for Sepp Blatter in the Fifa presidential election in May. Blatter is the current incumbent and is going for a fifth term in his role but faces competition from Prince Ali bin Al Hussein of Jordan, Dutch Football Association President Michael van Praag and former Portugal international Luis Figo. “His action in favour of Africa speaks for him. To us, he is still the man of the situation,” Cameroonian Hayatou said at the start of CAF’s two-day general assembly in Cairo.
