Comoros appoint Athoumane as new federation president

The Comoros Football Federation have appointed Said Ali Said Athoumane as their new president, following an election on Saturday.

Athoumane is the long-term successor to Omar Hassanaly, who was holding the role in an interim capacity since November 2017 when Tourqui Salim resigned.

Salim, considered the father of Comoran football since his appointment, left the federation in internal turmoil amidst allegations of match fixing.

According to Alwatwan, Athoumane was elected after taking 40 votes from an electorate of 52, seeing off rivals Youssouf Chaehoi and Houssouf Ali.

Ali received five votes, with Chaehoi picking up seven.

The election took place at the Retaj Hotel in Moroni, and was overseen by Urs Kluser, the delegate from FIFA and CAF.

"We're going to manage the federation with transparency and good governance," Athoumane told journalists.

The Comoros, who have never qualified for the African Cup of Nations, currently find themselves 130th in the FIFA World Ranking having never gone higher than 127.
