CAFCC: Enyimba vows to protest CAF’s decision on Al Ittihad rematch


Chairman of Enyimba football club, Felix Anyasi-Agwu, has said that the club will protest CAF’s decision to have the rescheduled CAF Confederations Cup first leg playoff tie against Al Ittihad played in Libya later this month.

The football body in a statement sent to both Enyimba and Al Ittihad on Monday, following the body’s meeting with Interclub Committee, disclosed that the rescheduled match would be played between December 17 and 19 in Benghazi, Libya.

Meanwhile, Al Ittihad had written to CAF to have the first leg ruled in their favour, but their request was dismissed by the football body, and have been granted till December 10 to fix the exact date for the rescheduled game, the kick-off time and other logistics needed

The first leg fixture which was initially scheduled for November 28 at the Stade Mustapha Ben Jannet in Monastir, Tunisia, was postponed after players and officials of Enyimba were denied entry into the country due to strict COVID-19 protocols.

Enyimba chairman in a chat with The PUNCH reporter noted that the decision of CAF to have the rematch in Libya was biased and nor in favour of the People’s Elephants who will have to cover the expenses of travelling for a second time for the match.

“We are going to protest the decision by CAF to replay the match in Libya,”

“It is a biased decision and we will protest it.”

The eighth-time Nigeria Professional Football League champions will be taking a two-goal advantage into the rescheduled game after beating Ittihad 2-0 on Sunday in Aba.
