Real de Banjul demands points from CAF


By Sulayman Bah Gambian champions Real de Banjul have demanded  points from  CAFREAL-BYC CAF following Barrack Young Controllers’ (BYC) failure to secure a venue for the mandatory second-leg. Liberian club BYC have played out a one-all first-leg in Banjul andwere expected to make arrangement for the second-leg after CAF suspended them from playing in Monrovia for fear of Ebola spread. They were advised by the Orange CL Organising Committee to look for a neutral venue and Mali was identified before the Bamako leadership decided to block BYC from jetting in the eleventh hour leading to the cancelation of the second-leg billed for last week Saturday. CAF is now handling the issue and are yet to make any public comment over the case. However, in the face of this dilemma, Real has asked to be given the points on grounds BYC failed to secure an alternative venue. The Banjul-based side amongst other things bemoaned the exorbitant expenses – incurring a fee in excess of 20,000 USD in camping its players –and said they can’t afford any more spending.]]>
