I don’t understand why African leaders are against change, I’m trying so hard not to be myopic about this, I’m obviously failing.
In the wake of the scandal that rocked football’s governing body, with over 14 football figures indicted over corruption allegations and seven FIFA executives arrested for bribery and racketeering charges.
Though UEFA boss, Michel Platini has implored Blatter to step down, Guinea-Bissau FA President has gone on record to say voting against the Swiss man, who has served four tenures as FIFA presiden is blasphemy.
“I’m a Christian and this is blasphemy,” he told Insideworldfootball.
“It’s a state conspiracy. People are always trying to knock Blatter. Africa will vote for Mr Blatter and Blatter will win and I will follow that.
“I agree at some point there has to be change but let Blatter finish his mandate and see what he does. It’s not all about the major European football countries.
“If you point three fingers at someone, there’s is always one you point at yourself. Tomorrow we are going to vote for Blatter. How do we know anyone else would be any better?”
