FIFA president has said that he wants the AFCON every 4 years. I am confused myself that this hasn't been suggested earlier. I am sure it has something to do with them trying to find a slot for their revamped version of the Club World Cup. I think it is a good opportunity to actually work things out. The World Cup will be held in the winter. I don't really know how all that is going to work but maybe give the AFCON the same set up every 4 years?
The biggest losers in this are African top players and at this moment of time we have 4 very very important players.
