Motsepe Has Finally Spoken|| Here Is What He Said About The FIFA's Proposal To Host The World Cup

Patrice Motsepe, former president of Mamelodi Sundowns, has endorsed FIFA's plan to have a World Cup every two years. Arsene Wenger, FIFA's head of global football development, has begun planning for a more regular World Cup. The plan has sparked heated debate in recent weeks, with former players and current managers questioning the viability of altering the existing World Cup format.

Motsepe, speaking in his position as CAF president during a visit to Ghana, backed FIFA's suggestion. "One of the major beneficiaries of football every two years in developing nations," Motsepe told the media. "My duty is to ensure that African football grows and flourishes alongside the Super League. African football must be positioned in a basic position to gain financially."

He also endorsed demands for an African Super League, which he claimed would help the region financially. The African Super League is a new tournament since all of the previous leagues are bound by agreements and the money they receive is insufficient. Fundamental changes must be made in the way we do things in football if African football is to be recognized throughout the world. We don't want anyone's help. They may operate independently, and that is what Motsepe is here to accomplish.

Motsepe has always done good to the country and I believe it is the reason why many South Africans like him, he is the first person to bring Barcelona to SA to play with Mamelodi Sundowns. Not only does he speak but there are also actions behind his words, money does come with power in this physical world but greater power comes from above.
