Hmm, so Issa Hayatou has some humanity left in him after all or has money exchanged hands African style. Who knows, all in all it was very distasteful to ban Togo in view of what happened and reversing the ban will be much welcomed. Read the article for details.
The Confederation of African Football (Caf) president Issa Hayatou has agreed to ask his executive committee to lift the sanctions imposed on Togo. Caf banned Togo from the next two Africa Cup of Nations sighting government interference after their withdrawal from the Cup of Nations in Angola.
Togo withdrew from the Nations Cup in Angola following an attack on their team bus that left two people dead in January.
The mediation was led by the Fifa president, Sepp Blatter, after both parties had agreed to interrupt a case due to be heard by the Court of Arbitration of Sport.
"I am very pleased that we have been able to find a solution which is satisfactory for both parties," Blatter said.
"The success today is for the entire football community, in particular for African football.
"This shows that we can solve internal disputes within the football family for the benefit of all those who are involved in our game and in particular for the players".
