Former Mamelodi Sundowns president Patrice Motsepe has backed FIFA's idea to hold a World Cup every two years. FIFA's head of global football development, Arsene Wenger, has begun preparing for a more regular World Cup. In recent weeks, the idea has prompted intense discussion, with former players and current managers doubting the practicality of changing the present World Cup system.
Motsepe, speaking as CAF president on a tour to Ghana, agreed with FIFA's idea. "Every two years, one of the biggest benefactors of football in poor nations," Motsepe told the reporters. "My responsibility is to guarantee that African football develops and thrives alongside the Super League. African football must be placed in a basic financial condition."
He also supported calls for an African Super League, claiming that it would benefit the area financially. The African Super League is a new event since all of the previous leagues are tied by agreements and get minimal funding. If African football is to be acknowledged throughout the world, fundamental changes must be made in the way we do things. We don't want anyone's assistance. They can function independently, which is what Motsepe is here to do.
Motsepe has always been very good and has done well for the nation, which I feel is why many South Africans adore him; he was the first to bring Barcelona to South Africa to play with Mamelodi Sundowns. Not only does he talk, but he also acts on his words; money does provide power in this world, but greater power comes from above.
