Football Federations Will Determine Representatives In Inter-Club Competitions – CAF
By Sampson Adedeji
Despite league yet to resume in Nigeria and in some major Africa countries, Confederation of African Football (CAF) has said it is local football administrators that will determine its representatives in the next season Inter-club Competitions.
Enyimba FC and Enugu Rangers represented Nigeria up to group the knockout stages this season but it’s yet to be determined if the Nigeria league will be concluded. The league if concluded produces teams that represent Nigeria in the CAF Champions League.
“Circumstances are different from a country to another as the league could be canceled or lasts for a longer time in some countries,” Samson explained.
“Local football federations will decide its representatives in the Champions League and Confederation Cup next season, not CAF.” Samson Adamo, CAF Director of Competition stated.
“CAF can’t intervene in the destiny of local competitions. Every local federation has the right to decide with its government whether to complete or to cancel the seasons,” concluded Samson Adamo.
