The famous consultant of Canal + Pierre Ménes recently answered the questions of the daily newspaper Les Echos . This football fan has not gone out of his way to tackle FIFA and defend African football as well as that of Senegalese star Sadio Mané.
Speaking about the FIFA Awards, the French said that FIFA shows contempt for African football and this is inconceivable:
” Unfortunately, as long as Messi and Ronaldo play, they will be on the podium. They will always be nominated. It’s been ten years since these two players are at the top. It has been ten years since these two players scored more than 50 goals per season. Nevertheless, finding Sadio Mané at the bottom of the podium for this title of best FIFA player of the year shows a certain contempt for African football. And, it’s a shame because to ignore Sadio Mané and Salah for this title is a fault. Mané was very good last season, if he confirms this year, he will be a more dangerous candidate , “said the French journalist.
Regarding the performance of the Senegalese striker at the last African Cup of Nations, Perre Menes said he was unsatisfied ” I found it worse with Senegal. This is normal, Senegal is worse than Liverpool. It’s a bit Messi with Barca and Messi with Argentina, it’s not the same thing. Mané can not do everything, he needs to be well surrounded. The game of Senegal was not extraordinary at the CAN, there was no connection between the middle and the attack. African players are still struggling to shine in the national team, because it lacks this collective game. “
