As Horoya AC hooked the past weekend their qualification for the knockout stages of the African Champions League – see all results- eliminating Raja Casablanca in the penalty shootout 5-4, the Moroccan club still believes in an eventual recovery by the CAF. Since Sunday, a reservation was made against the Guinean training for fraudulent use of a player.
Officials of the club indicate that the Guinean Mohamed Camara should not appear on the score sheet of Horoya because his loan with the club expired in June 2013.
Firstly rejected by the Guinean authorities, CAF on Saturday have also rejected their complaint and announced that the results would stand and that the Guinean club had qualified to the pre group stage of African Champions League.
The continental body dropped their last word at the end of a statement relayed by our colleagues from Supersport.com:
“(…). The Organising Committee for Interclub Competitions confirms the eligibility of the player, Mohamed Camara, for Horoya AC and rejects the reservation made by the Raja Casablanca. Therefore, Horoya AC has qualified for the next stage of the 2014 Orange CAF Champions League.”
In return, the Northern Africans seem not to decrease arms right now and announced they will appeal to the World’s Football Governing Body, FIFA to obtain satisfaction.
