The Confederation of African Football (CAF) have reacted to the viral reports in the media that the African Cup of Nations billed for January, is on the brink of been cancelled.

According to reports from the French media, which claims that Covid-19 new Omicron variant could lead CAF to cancel the 33rd edition of the African Cup of Nations.

The report added that English Premier League clubs would like to keep their players, as those called up have to undergo quarantine upon their return to the United Kingdom, which would deprive clubs of their players for a longer period.

However, the Confederation of African Football has cleared the air on the cancellation, with CAF Head of Media Relations and Operations, Lux September describing the reports as a fake news.

He added that “Of course these are lies. There has not been a single meeting where this was discussed.”

“But we all know the source of misinformation from some lobby groups, they always undermine Africa. We know them.”

Meanwhile, the Secretary General of CAF, Veron Mosengo-Omba also reassured Africans on Tuesday during his visit to Yaounde that the Olembe Stadium will be ready for the opening game of the tournament between Cameroon and Burkina Faso on January 9.
