However, the Senegalese Football Federation decided to speak up about the issue, addressing the reason behind the exclusion, which is according to them, disrespectful, pernicious, and discriminatory behaviour from Watford.
“The Senegalese Football Federation wishes to express by this press release its deep condemnation of the disrespectful, pernicious and discriminatory behaviour of the leaders of Watford who seek by all means to prevent a player from playing with his national team,” FSF statement said.
After the statement was released, Watford replied, claiming that they were transparent about the issues as Sarr is currently suffering an injury and is undergoing rehabilitation.
