Morocco has the capacity and all the means, as well as the appropriate infrastructure to organize exceptional competitions both of CAF or other sporting events, said Friday in Salé, president of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) Patrice Motsepe.
“I am proud that the level of football in the African continent is improving day by day. We must make football a means of bringing people and nations together,” Motsepe said in a statement to the press upon his arrival at the airport of Rabat-Salé.
He said added that there are many important issues that will be discussed Friday at the meeting of the Executive Board of the African Confederation, including those relating to the functioning of the continental body and its commitment to the promotion of global governance.
“We need to reorganize CAF and continental football in order to strengthen their competitiveness and independence on a global scale,” Motsepe added, noting that the role of the private sector has become very important in this regard.
Referring to the main sports structures at the continental level, Motsepe noted that “the Mohammed VI Football Complex is one of the most important sports centers of which we are proud”, adding that Morocco is able to train exceptional and high-level players who will be the pride of the Moroccan people and the African community.
“We also want one of the continent’s national teams to win the World Cup,” he said.
Later in the day, Motsepe will chair a meeting of the Executive Board of CAF, during which he will present the general orientations of the continental football body to the presidents of the federations taking part in this meeting.
