CAF Confederation Cup: Covid 19 Test Delays ASC Jaaraf Arrival To Nigeria
By Sampson Adedeji
Failure to meet the required standard of scheduled flight was responsible for the delayed arrival of the Senegalese side, ASC Jaaraf to Nigeria on Wednesday, BSNSports.com.ng reports.
The team was scheduled to hit Nigeria on Wednesday but was unable to do so following late recording of the results of the COVID tests on the application as required by the airline.
“We had never seen this information, both from the company and the agency. Paradoxically, the forward mission that we did, and which is already in Abuja, Nigeria, went through this same airport without responding to these electronic questionnaires. We also noticed that we had in front of us a disrespectful man as station manager”, club secretary Leonard Diagne, said.
“After negotiations that came to nothing, players subsequently returned to their camp where they carried out collective training this morning. They hope to leave this evening or at the latest Thursday morning.
The Senegalese hope to protect their two goal lead and progress to the next round at the expense of Kano Pillars.
Meanwhile, Kano Pillars are hopeful of turning the table against ASC Jaraaf when they hosts their opponent in the second leg of the competition.
