17 March: Ahmad Ahmad Wins CAF Presidency & Zambia's Success in U20 AFCON

On this week's show we look at the CAF elections as Ahmad Ahmad of Madagascar deposes Issa Hayatou as leader of African football. Good times for Zambia as they host and win the U20 AFCON. Also we focus on head injuries in football – unfortunate incidents that happen from time to time. We speak to Gambian defender Pa Modou Jagne who suffered a head injury with his Swiss club and took six months to recover. And we review the UEFA Champions League results as Leicester City defy their low position in the English Premier League to secure a place in the Quarter Finals.

What do you think about Ahmad's appointment as CAF president?  Is the change going to be good for African football?  Send us your comments on Facebook (see below), by email to or via Whats App +44-7955-232780.
