  1. The fact we took the emotional decesion to first invest in football, instead of investing in building industries that will generate money to invest in football, using the image of of the game like a window to commercialise fresh products from our industries was a terrible strategic mistake.the result is that when African football teams are paying. All the companies using the image to expand thier business are non African. Mtn, orange, total, etc are good examples. In the end we do not control revenues from football or industry because of a wrong strategic orientation.in such conditions it is impossible to accumulate capital to invest in sports medicine, top quality infrastructure. Those who organise football are the main benefactors. The rest are cawards with no center of interest.

  2. 1)African Player of the Year winner will be, Sadio Mane (Senegal & Liverpool). 2) African Women’s Player of the Year winner will be, Ajara Nchout (Cameroon & Valerenga ) .3) African Interclubs Player of the Year winner will be , Denis Onyango (Uganda & Mamelodi Sundowns). 4) African Youth Player of the Year winner will be , Samuel Chukwueze (Nigeria & Villarreal). 5) African Men’s Coach of the Year, winner is, Aliou Cisse (Senegal – Senegal). 6) African Women’s Coach of the Year, winner Desiree Ellis (South Africa). 7) African Men’s National Team of the Year will be Senegal .8) African Women’s National Team of the Year will be Cameroon.
