GFF, MOYS IN TALKS ON FOOTBALL CRISIS

The GFF is racing against time to at least save the national team from Caf suspension and has said they would enlist the support the MOYS and other state agencies to present a case before Caf.

Though none of the officials from either side at the meeting would volunteer information on the specific areas covered in the talks, The Standard understood that MOYS is reported to have spelled out options for the GFF to follow as a way forward to get the nation out of this crisis. 

Our sources said the outcome of the talks which will continue this morning will look a bit more conciliatory than the outright exit of the GFF top brass demanded by the National Sports Council’s task force.

The Gambia has only two weeks to work on any plans to restore the national team back in the Caf programme with the first leg of the preliminaries slated for May 17 in Banjul.
