“African football has long been plagued with having to compete with talent drain, as their top stars often end up playing for more elite clubs in Europe. However, efforts by the Confederation of African Football to boost the club leagues of Africa seems to be paying off as the game has slowly become more lucrative, in a region teeming with potential.”
