The world football governing body intends to hold the World Cup biennially, and there is more support for the proposal on the African continent than resistance.

Gernot, the head coach of the Super Eagles, has stated why African nations have backed FIFA’s idea to hold the World Cup every two years.

The potential of increased financial gain for Africa’s weak football associations, according to Rohr, is driving the continent’s enthusiasm for the unique notion.

The FIFA World Cup is held every four years, with the 2018 edition set to take place in Qatar next year. In 2018, Russia hosted the 21st edition of the tournament, with France winning the title.

FIFA, on the other hand, sought to reform the schedule and has formed a committee led by ex Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger to investigate the feasibility of reducing the World Cup cycle from four to two years.

FIFA President Gianni Infantino believes the plan has the potential to elevate football to another dimension, with more teams playing in the event, increased financial revenue, and a fresh commercial influence.

However, European countries are opposed to the concept, citing concerns about the impact of more recurrent tournaments on players.

Countries in africa, on the other hand, have applauded FIFA’s decision, with Nigerian Football Federation President Amaju Pinnick pushing UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin to change his mind and support FIFA’s initiative since it is beneficial for the game’s evolution in back in September.

However, according to Rohr, money is the driving force behind the Africans’ desire for a two-year World Cup.

“The African associations are not as rich as the European or American associations,” said Rohr when explaining the unique situation in African football on the German program “Sport am Sonntag”, as per Sued Deutsche.

​A World Cup, according to the former Bordeaux manager, brings “a rain of money with one participation, with which the association then has to entertain the national teams, including the U23, the U17, and the women”.

Rohr, on the other hand, makes it obvious that he supports the social order.

The former Gabonese national team coach urges the football governing body to put players’ welfare first, citing the fact that the players already have a long list of competitions to attend, including the Africa Cup of Nations.

“You can’t just look for TV money,” Rohr added. “You really have to pay attention to the health of the players.

“For example, we now have the Africa Cup in January, which can take six weeks. And hopefully, we will have the World Cup in November.

“There is hardly any space left to play other games,” the 68-year-old concluded.
