Hicham El Amrani resigns as Caf secretary general

The Confederation of African Football’s (Caf) secretary general Hicham El Amrani resigned on Sunday, just over a week after long-standing president Issa Hayatou was ousted from power following defeat to Madagascar’s Ahmad in the elections.

El Amrani, in a letter to African football associations, said he would be departing on Monday, but gave no reason for his decision.

The 37-year-old Moroccan had served as secretary general for the last six years.
