Fifa general secretary Fatma Samoura looks likely to be appointed as a “High Commissioner for Africa” in the wake of governance issues that have troubled football in the region.

The Confederation of African Football (Caf) have allowed world governing body Fifa to take control of the organisation, with the appointment of Senegalese Samoura an important part of getting things back on track.

The issues include Caf president Ahmad Ahmad being questioned with regard to corruption and a breach of trust, the replaying of the African Champions League final, and the rescheduling of 2019, 2021 and 2023 Africa Cup of Nations finals.

A decision on Samoura has not yet been made – but, if it does happen, her top priority is “to conduct a root and brand (sic) review of governance of the confederation, oversee operational management of the organisation and recommend where needed a series of reform efforts,” according to a leaked memo.
