Liberia’s President George Weah has backed Morocco in their bid to host the 2025 Africa Cup of Nations.
The former Ballon D’Or winner fronted Morocco’s continued lead in developing football across the continent, which gives them the upper hand over the other bidding nations.
“Liberia fully endorses and supports Morocco’s bid to host CAF Nations Cup 2025,” Weah was quoted by BBC.
“I have made this commitment to King Mohamed VI. It is cast in stone,” he reiterated.
Morocco brought immense pride to Africa at the just-ended World Cup in Qatar, becoming the first African country in history to make the semi-finals and as such, Weah believes Africa must honor them with the right to host the 2025 Nations Cup.
He also made it public knowledge that he had already begun campaigning for Morocco with football stakeholders around the continent.
Algeria, South Africa, Zambia, and a joint bid from Benin-Nigeria are the other nations lining up to take over from Guinea, which was stripped of hosting rights over substandard infrastructure.
