The coach of “Senegal” Alain Giresse has explain the Morocco’s intention to postpone the upcoming ‘Afcon’ 2015 as excessive.
Royal Moroccan Football Federation (RMFF) last week asked for permission to get their selves off the competition due to the issues of the Ebola virus which claimed 4500 human beings, according to the news of the World Health Organization (WHO).
Confederation of African Football (CAF) turned down that request and called for a meeting with Moroccan officials to discuss the matter in Algeria on November 2.
The coach gives the statement that if Kingdom went out of the tournament then it will create a social phobia of Ebola beyond the African countries.
Giresse said on Friday that “We cannot let the Ebola virus go, but it is hard to understand that such a huge tournament would be postponed. For how long, one month, two, six, one year or would they eventually abandon it?”
“That would be a brutal decision. Has the Moroccan government sufficiently consulted? Ebola virus should not the only reason to postponed the cup there are many queries besides this
“This has a straight forward meaning that African will not move from one place to another and this virus will come heavy on them which we must try to stop for the people of Africa” said by Frenchman.
The 2015 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) is set to play in Morocco from January 17 to February 8 in four cities, but the 2nd November meeting between CAF and Morocco FA will set the tone.
According to the source, CAF has contacted with other African countries which includes Ghana and South Africa if they could host the tournament if Morocco pulls out.
