The Confederation of African Football (CAF) should be commended for their efforts for the resumption of the football matches, this according to Bafana Bafana coach Molefi Ntseki.
CAF confirmed on Tuesday that the Africa Cup of Nations which was scheduled for next year in Cameroon has been rescheduled for January 2022 due to the disruptions caused by the Coronavirus pandemic worldwide.
While the COVID-19 put most of the leagues on the continent on a standstill, and with the dates for the final AFCON tournament and remaining games of the qualifiers yet to be communicated, there seems to be hope for the South African senior national team coach that things will soon be back to normal for football to resume.
“Remember for international football to be played, professional leagues have to be active, you can’t have it the other way round. National teams’ activities are guided by clubs – in short, no club football no international competition, it is that simple,” he told SAFA Media.
“On the continent, there are a few leagues that are in action – and that tells you that international football is still far off. So we should applaud the CAF Executive for the efforts they are making for the resumption of the game – and all what they are doing is giving positive vibes that there will be football soon, and in this case soon is relative,” the coach added.
