Nigeria National League side Vandrezzer FC (VFC) are elated by the proposed Africa Super League, following the announcement by CAF President, Patrice Motsepe on Sunday.
Motsepe said CAF must consider new competitions to generate additional income for itself and its member associations and contribute to African football becoming globally competitive and self-sustaining.
VFC believes the African Super League, an idea first suggested by FIFA president Gianni Infantino in 2019, would be a welcome development as it is needed to improve the game on the continent and make it financially viable.
While fielding questions on the proposed Super League in London, VFC founder Joe Udofia, described the idea as an exciting one that would certainly uplift the level of African football.
“It is a great idea and I think it would give Nigerian clubs a lot of leverage and value, devoid of bottlenecks,” Udofia said.
While the format of the proposed league has yet to be formalised although initial reports suggest most of the continent’s super heavyweights would be permanent members, Udofia said the current VFC has the quality to “make the cut”.
“We are positive our players can make the cut, once the proposed league is rolled out; as we expect it to be run with transparency and inclusiveness as the watchword.”
