• Elected president of the MFA in August 2010, and re-elected for a new three-year term in July 2013, he is committed to investing in football infrastructure, and strengthening the island's technical sector and grassroots football. A believer in ongoing education at all levels, he said: "In today's business world, staying still means falling behind. This concept is equally applicable to football management, especially in sports science where, in a fast-changing world, we have to seek to stay abreast with current developments and practice in order to ensure that our teams participate with honour in competitive matches at all levels."
