CAFCC: Al Nasr dirty practice a shame on African Football – Agali


There has been mild controversy around the CAF Confederation Cup playoff match between Al Nasr Benghazi and Rivers United, drawing criticisms from former Nigerian Forward Victor Agali.

In a chat with FL, Agali argues that the conduct of the Libyan club is a big disservice to African football.

According to reports online, on Tuesday, Rivers United were subjected to several unsportsmanlike conducts by their host.

The Nigerian team was made to train with torch lights as the floodlights at the Benina Martyrs Stadium were turned off before practice session began and they were also without Security ahead of Today’s game.

Al Nasr trail 5-0 from the first leg, and Agali slammed the antics of the Libyan side and identified it as one more reason why football on the continent is not progressing.

He also hit out the Administrators of Al Nasr for not having an idea of the game, claiming that if they were active football actors and the positions were not just simply handed over to them unmerited, they would have done the right thing and host a visiting team better.

“Those in position are those that don’t have a stake in the game and don’t understand how the game works.

“Football is not an avenue for empowerment, it’s suppose to be a game for those involved and Football position (Administration) shouldn’t be given to people that don’t understand how it works and on the long run Africa’s football suffers for it.”
