HH Sheikh Saif hailed the decision to nominate His Excellency Mohammed Khalfan Al Rumaithi, who has a considerable expertise and a longstanding record for contributions to the UAE football sector, as well as an extensive knowledge of Asian football and potential challenges.
It is worth mentioning that Al Rumaithi has a distinguished sporting relationship with a number of Asian and international football officials; and his tenure as member of the AFC Executive Office would benefit Asian football significantly and represent an added value to this prestigious forum, chaired by Sheikh Salman bin Ibrahim Al Khalifa, with whom he has a strong longstanding relationship.
