The Confederation of African Football (CAF) President Ahmad Ahmad, has revealed plans to involve Ghana’s legend, Abedi Pele and other retired footballers in Africa to develop the sport.

Ahmad, 57, told the AFP website that talks have already been initiated for collaborations with some of these iconic figures as he bids to influence a positive change the face of football on the continent during his term.

"I've spoken to Didier Drogba by telephone, I saw Abedi Pele, a colleague's seen Samuel Eto, I talked to Patrick M'boma,” Dr. Ahmad unseats long-serving Cameroonian Issa Hayatou in an election last month said. “Soon, we will organize a meeting with representatives of these African stars to discuss future collaborations with CAF).

The new CAF boss also noted that his presidency will enhance transparency in all dealings. "The change I can guarantee is at the level of financial management because perhaps for too long CAF is not at the (proper) standard, with lack of transparency, and bad governance, with interference in the making of decisions. "All that is in the pass now and is going to stop."
