The Special one is not one to mince words, he says it as is. Mourinho believes a ban on Africans from representing European Countries would bring more success to the African continent, football-wise.
Current reining world cup champions France, fielded more African Players than any other European Country during the 2020 Euro’s.
It is with this that Mourinho seeks equal grounds. In his statement, he wants Africa to be equal to or with everyone with the talents they have.
Mourinho on his tour in Africa said this:
“I want the world to see that Africa is equal with everyone, Africa are not behind with talent. They have talents to win any tournament, except that most of their best players are scattered around the world playing for other countries instead of their homelands”.
“I know I won’t be popular for making this statement, but FIFA should make things fair by refusing to let players to represent other countries, this will make FIFA tournaments even more competitive not one sided.”
