COSAFA reaffirms backing for FIFA President Gianni Infantino

The 14 member associations of COSAFA have reaffirmed their support for FIFA President Gianni Infantino at the organisation’s Annual General Meeting in Johannesburg on Saturday.

Infantino received the unanimous backing of the Southern African region as he seeks re-election as head of the global governing body later this year.

The move is in line with a similar stance taken last year by the Confederation of African Football (CAF), who endorsed the presidency of Infantino.

“I want another four years of it because I believe in what I do,” Infantino said at FIFA’s Congress in Moscow last year. “I believe in what I can do for FIFA and for football.”
