OPINION | FIFA does not respect African football. See what they said.


FIFA has decided to hold the FIFA club world cup in Qatar but people noticed something about this decision. African teams have started participating in the AFCON cup tournament meaning that they will not be able to participate in the FIFA club tournament. Many Africans see this as disrespect. Image

FIFA has always looked down on African football and has never acknowledged it. An example of this is the fact that FIFA took a very long time in responding to the plea made by South Africa about their match with Ghana. It is quite the fact that African leagues are not as advanced as European Leagues but there is no need to be disrespectful. Image

One twitter user however, had a different opinion. This is what he/she said:

"People take offense in the silliest of things, our football is not that good, we may have produced good players as a continent but the playing ain't that great, and taking offense as if the whole world is watching Afcon is petty, its mostly just a few of us watching."
