Musa Bility believes African football is on the decline

first_imgLiberian FA President Musa Bility has expressed his disappointment at the state of football on the continent.The FIFA presidential hopeful, speaking exclusively on Asempa FM’s Sports Night stated the major bane of African football was down to poor cash injection.Bility was of the view football in Africa is on a downward football spiral.“It is in a downward trend. There is no money, the clubs are suffering. Our competitions are not funded,” he told Asempa Sports.“I am sure by now, Ghanaians are watching the English Premier League. We are being colonized through football again. Unless we put money behind our clubs and hire professionals to play for us. Football is in a bad state.”When asked whether FIFA was of any help, Musa believed it was incumbent on Africans to develop their own game and not solely rely on FIFA aid.  “You give me money, 500,000, 200,000 , that is not what I want. It is to develop my capacity to make my own money and that has not happened to Africa yet. Unless that happens we are going to stay where we are.”Musa Bility was banned for six months by CAF on May 2, 2013 for violating status to the use of confidential documents.–Follow Kweku on Twitter: @nana_odum.
