The African football authorities will begin a two-day meeting in Morocco today to discuss the future of the game on the continent, according to a BBC report.
Among the issues they will consider is the timing of the Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon), which is played every two years and currently clashes with the European football season.
This presents a problem for many of Africa’s star players who also represent European club sides.
Liverpool’s Joel Matip was one of seven Cameroon players who said they did want to go to Afcon earlier this year. The team did, however go on to win the cup.
Calls to move the Cup of Nations to June or July have previously been rejected, but Caf’s new president has signalled that he is open to considering it.
