Addressing the Media in Accra at the WAFU Zone B Congress 2016, he promised to decentralise FIFA and make people work for football.
He has an affinity with the struggles of Africa not only in football development but political, economic and social too. Indeed his children are of african descent.
He says”football should not be run by the people but people should be run by football” He pledges to demystify FIFA and decentralise it’s power base from Zurich in Switzerland so that it becomes more accessible but more importantly allows the people to be a integral part of the decision making process.
