Former Egypt and Premier League striker Mido feels FIFA’s call to set the Club World Cup at the same time as the Africa Cup of Nations is unacceptable.

With the two tournaments both scheduled for February 2022, will players choose club commitments or honour national call-ups for the AFCON?

“Holding the FIFA Club World Cup to coincide with the African Nations Cup is disrespectful from the International Confederation of African Football,” Mido said via Kick Off.

“Can the International Federation hold the tournament at the same time as the European Nations Cup or at the same time as Copa America? of course not!!’ the former Tottenham Hotspur man added.

Will one tournament be rescheduled? We think it is quite possible the Club World Cup will be moved.
