Caf President Patrice Motsepe has revealed that the Caf Executive Committee discussed the possibility of the African Super League as expected but says the Inter-Club Committee is assessing situation.

In a statement released by Caf from his press conference in Morocco, Motsepe says the idea must be all inclusive although originally, the idea is to have top African clubs featuring in the Super League.

“We discussed the African Super League, and many broadcasting companies expressed that they want to be a part of it,” he stated.

“The Interclub committee is assessing the situation and will advise on an inclusive way so as every country in Africa benefits from this project. The benefits of the African Super League will be shared all over the continent’s 54 countries.

“We cannot do anything that excludes our people. Football is for everyone and we have an obligation to keep it available for the poor. This new CAF Super League is inclusive.”

Motsepe tasked the Interclub Committee to formulate the criteria and rules that will ensure the idea succeeds.  

“The Interclub committee will formulate the criteria and rules’ details to make it successful. What I can confirm is that every country will be included. It is a grassroots driven and every country will be a part of it.”

How that will be achieved remains a mystery but wait to see if Caf will pull it off after the idea was quashed in Europe.
