AFCON 4 year routine proposal: Eto’o & Drogba Clash

Published

on

Drogba a Revolutionary while Eto’o more  Conservative as both legends disagree on FIFA’s AFCON 4 year routine proposal.

FIFA’s president, Gianni Infantino proposed on February 1, 2020 that AFCON should be played after every four years instead of the traditional 2year routine.

This was in a CAF general Assembly meeting held in Rabat, Morocco.

But since this proposal was made, African football stakeholders received the proposal with mix feelings as the two most decorated African Players in the 21st century, Didier Drogba and Samuel Eto’o both have different views concerning the subject matter.

Drogba’s view:

Former Ivory Coast international “the monster, Mr. Invincible” Didier Drogba agrees with Gianni Infantino’s revolutionary proposal of spacing the AFCON to be played after every 4 years.

Speaking to Africanews, Drogba argued that playing the competition after two years will be a disadvantage to African players plying their trade in Europe judging from the fact that a bulk of Africa Stars now ply their trade in Europe.

Drogba also gave his experience in his playing days as the two-year routine of the AFCON jeopardized his place in the starting line-up while playing for Chelsea.

“It was really complicated, not to mention the weather conditions. So it’s going to be an interesting debate and I hope to contribute too”

Drogba added.

Eto’o ‘s view

The former Cameroon international “Goal Accountant”, Samuel Eto’o disagrees with Infantino’s proposal of organizing the AFCON after 4 years.

The former Barcelona and Inter Milan forward is against the proposal as he made it clear that the four years routine is for the benefit European clubs as they always want to hold on to Africa’s best like Moh Salah, Sadio Mane, Pierre Emerick Aubameyang and others to avoid consistent AFCON called ups.

“FIFA defends the interest of European clubs”

said the for goal accountant Samuel Eto’o.

Though both Legends have different views on the subject, the two former strikers are yet to give solutions on how the AFCON will not affect the cordial relationship between European clubs and African stars when called up for AFCON duty.
