The confederation of African football has condemned the comment made by Napoli president playing in Europe.
The confederation claims that despite the speech made by the Napoli president, they hope both UEFA and Napoli are committed to their humanitarian objective in their action towards African players playing in their continent.
In a statement released via the Caf official website claims recent African cup of Nations hosted by Cameron had over 600 millions views across the globe.
“We have no doubt that Napoli and UEFA are as committed as CAF is to these global humanitarian objectives”. CAF replied.
Are we to assume that the Chairman of Napoli is going to include similar restrictive conditions to players from South America, Asia and other Confederations prohibiting them from playing in their Continental competitions which are important for the development and growth of football globally?
The African Cup of Nations is the flagship competition of the African continent and one of the leading global football competitions. Its last edition in Cameroon was shown in more than 160 countries and attracted more than 600 million viewers.
