Serving as Special Adviser to the United Nations Secretary-General on Sport for Development and Peace is a tremendous joy and honor. Having a background in professional football, it is a new and rewarding challenge to harness the power of sport for social progress – namely, for accelerating development and peace throughout the world. My engagement in the world of sport and politics for the past 25 years provides me with a wealth of experience from which I can draw ideas to facilitate the realization of the Millennium Development Goals. To be certain, achieving this goal is of the highest priority to the United Nations family.

 

The aim of this website is to provide information on current events, interviews, articles, UN Missions, media-services as well as a rudimentary history of my working life and engagements.
