Roger Milla criticized North African nations including Morocco for supporting FIFA President Gianni Infantino’s plan to postpone the current Africa Cup of Nations.
Roger Milla believes that Morocco and Egypt in particular have supported FIFA because of the delays of African nations in the organization of the CAN, which begins Sunday in Cameroon.
“The supporters of the FIFA program are the nations of North Africa because they always mess things up! They always cause chaos ”, did he declare. on the French channel “TV5 Monde”.
“Sorry, Morocco or Egypt or whatever, I’m telling them here as a brother. It’s not normal. If they are not Africans, let them leave the continent and play in Europe or Asia. Do not cause chaos on the African continent ”, lambasted the Cameroonian legend, who continues:
“They have always grown up on the African continent. We accepted them, they succeeded, so today they have no reason to speak ill of other African countries, it is not normal ”.
Cameroon initially won the right to host the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, but the competition moved to Egypt because the Central African nation was not ready to host it in time.
The 2021 edition, which has been postponed for 12 months due to an infection with the coronavirus, will take place from January 9 to February 6, before it is officially decided.
