The Algerian football leaders He again gave a presentation on Thursday (June 16th) for the regular general meeting of the Algerian Football Federation.
And it may not be finished because another assembly, optional and therefore high-risk, will be scheduled in less than a month.
Contrary to the title, Thursday’s meeting is not complete” Normal It comes two and a half months after the earthquake of excluding the national team from the World Cup and its aftermaths True and false resignation President of the Algerian Football Association, Charf Eddine Amara.
His departure was announced during an extraordinary meeting of the Federal Office on Thursday, March 31, 48 hours after the defeat against Cameroon (1-2) on March 29 in Blida, But he backed off a few days It was later discovered that other members of the Federal Bureau (BF) were trying to hold on to their positions.
The past two months have been marked by successive intra-BF resignations and general strife, the challenge being to influence the future, namely the election of a new management team to the presidency of the Fifa.
Today, Thursday, Al-Amara submitted his resignation to the General Assembly, which ratified it. Officially, he is no longer the head of the FAF, which he led for only 14 months. Amara was elected in April 2021 to replace Khairuddin Zichy after a process that also caused a lot of ink to flow.
FAF Secretary-General Mounir Debicchi will handle the day-to-day business until the Electoral Assembly scheduled for 7 July. The FAF’s General Assembly also appointed, among other things, the Nominations Committee.
But before getting there, the meeting saw some turmoil. Firstly because of the moral and financial records of the outgoing president and office, which some members wanted to reject.
Sharaf al-Din accused Amara of ” Unnecessary expenses ”, such a high reward given to the players of the national football team after qualifying for the last African Cup of Nations in Cameroon, from which they will depart in the first round.
But the balance sheets will be approved by a large majority and the page of Madar Group CEO’s transition to the head of Algerian football will certainly turn.
Given what happened Thursday at the school of restaurants and hotels in Ain Beniane on the western coast of Algiers, the real battle, the battle of succession, has only just begun.
Behind the scenes and in public sessions, the cameras caught painful quarrels between well-known personalities who occupy important positions in the Algerian football hierarchy, and therefore are supposed to set an example in the field of restraint.
The exchange between Abdel Karim Al-Madwar, president of the Professional Football League (LFP), and Ammar Bahloul, formerly ranked second in Al-Ittihad, is surreal. The TV channels that broadcast it had to crowd in some clips. Bahloul is presented as a demonstrator of the Amara caliphate.
Before coming to the General Assembly, Mohamed Zarouati, head of the Saoura Youth, had announced the color by inviting the members of the Council to ” to be men Architecture budgets declined.
On Thursday, he clashed with Secretary General Debicchi in front of the cameras. The two men almost got hit. The offer is simply not worthy of the institution and the country.
It is a painful picture given to Algerian football, which has barely emerged from a series of disappointments, with a total failure in the African Cup of Nations 2021, exclusion from the race for the World Cup as well as the absence of Algerian clubs in the lead. Rounds of continental competitions.
In the room, the presence of Muhammad Rawara did not go unnoticed. He is the friendliest man during this General Assembly and some are not ruling out his return to the head of the FA. Whether he is a candidate or not, the Electoral Council promises to be even more stormy, and Algeria’s football leaders squandered another opportunity to set an example.
