PSG chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi re-elected to LFP council

Paris Saint-Germain chairman and CEO Nasser Al-Khelaifi has been re-elected to French Football League's (LFP) Administrative Council after the eight Ligue 1 representatives were confirmed on Friday.

Nathalie Boy de la Tour was elected president of the LFP after Raymond Domenech's candidacy was rejected and the 20 Ligue 1 clubs have come to an agreement over the division of television money in the coming seasons.

Al-Khelaifi retains his position as part of the LFP's Administrative Council after initial doubts he would keep his role and the Qatari told PSG's official website of the "need to work together on a communal development project for professional football in France."

"We need to act with a strong spirit of solidarity and move forward with the ambition, shared by all, of making French football ever more attractive and ever more competitive on the international level given the increasingly tough competition we face," Al-Khelaifi added.

Al-Khelaifi now sits on the LFP Administrative Council, as well as the European Club Association's executive board and UEFA's professional football strategy council after becoming the first Ligue 1 representative on the PFSC last month.
