Barak Young Controllers of Ebola-hit Liberia, are now considering to come back to Banjul for their home leg of the champions League tie against Real de Banjul, after failing to secure a host elsewhere.
The team played a 1-1 draw against Real in the opening leg on Valentine’s day but did not respond to an offer by the GFF for them to play their home leg in Banjul. Instead the Liberians announced their home leg shall be in Mali only to be denied entry by that country few days before the scheduled date of the match.
They tried but failed to convince Ivory Coast to let them in and are now left with no choice but to take The Gambia’s offer.
According to GFF second vice president Ebou Faye, BYC are now prepared to come to Banjul to host the return leg. ”But the sticking point remains the new date for the match because the Liberians are proposing this Saturday, March 7,which is too prompt for Real de Banjul. So negotiations are still on between the two sides and of course both are in correspondence with Caf,” Faye said.
Real de Banjul last week expressed disappointment over the fiasco and asked Caf to award them the three points. But the African football governing body has not granted that request yet.]]>
