COSAFA President, Zimbabwe ‘s Philip Chiyangwa, has promised to also fight dirty, if Patrice Motsepe (58)’ s CAF presidential elections opponents fight dirty.
Speaking to the Sunday World Newspaper, Chiyangwa said if Motsepe’s opponents fight smart, they will also fight smart.
Chiyangwa said out of the 54 countries, Motsepe is hoping to get at least between 34 and 40 votes, because COSAFA is going aggressive.
On his part, Motsepe said if he wins the CAF presidency, he will invite African soccer legends into CAF structures.
He said he will also invite black players in the French league and those currently playing in the Diaspora.
Motsepe is facing three other candidates for the CAF presidency.
Augustin Senghor (55), a lawyer from Senegal, has emerged as a serious challenger to Motsepe.
Senghor was involved in a big drive this week to combine his bid with that of Ivory Coast’s Jacques Anouma (69) to form a joint candidature.
The last candidate, Ahmed Yahya (44), from Mauritania, is unknown and is considered an outsider.
The CAF presidential elections will be held in Rabat, Morocco, on the 12th of March.
