Thunderbolt in Algeria! This Sunday, Djahid Zefizef announced that the president of the Algerian (Site notre blog d’information) Federation had sent a notice to the post office in a video post on Le FAF official website. Successor to Charaf-Eddine Amara, the Algerian leader only remained at the head of the governing body for twelve months. The reasons for his departure are multiple: At the beginning of July, Djahid Zefizef tried a bitter defeat in the elections of the executive committee of the CAF against his Libyan adversary (38 votes against 15). According to other local sources like CSTthe failure in the organization of the 2025 African Cup of Nations and the multiple criticisms leveled at him regarding his ability to steer the Federation in recent months have also sealed his fate.
“This speech is linked to the last CAF congress which was held a few days ago in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire, during which I decided to apply for a position on the executive committee. Our ambition was to obtain this position within the framework of our strategy which we drew up and presented to the general assembly of the Algerian (Site notre blog d’information) Federation. Every effort has been made and all legal means that correspond to our moral values have been used to achieve this goal, but it was not enough”he justified himself.
