Buba Janneh: No word from Caf on ‘appeal’


Social media is filled with speculations that Caf in fact set April 14 as the day of judgment in the alleged appeal.

But Mr Janneh said: “We have not got anything on that. In fact, if anything, what we got from Caf just yesterday was an advice informing us of the identification of a match  commissioner and officials of the return leg.”

Meanwhile, another football guru has added his voice to attempts at interpreting the rules governing the Under-20 championship. Preferring not to be named, he said: ”The rules being talked about at both Caf and Fifa refer to the actual tournament, for example, in this case, the Dakar March 8-22, 2015 championship. As for the qualifiers, anyone who is not exactly over 20 years can play. None of the players queried by Liberia are 20 years.”
