Thursday, December 27, 2018

Gambia Football Federation (GFF) has announced on Tuesday that the Confederation of African Football (CAF) has finally responded to their correspondences following series of reminders and follow-ups to the protest it lodged against the eligibility of Togolese player Adewale James Olufade/Adewale Oloufade in the AFCON qualifier match away in Lome.

In a statement issued by GFF’s director of marketing and communications Baboucarr Camara, CAF wrote to the country’s football governing body on 25th December, acknowledging the receipt of their most recent correspondence dated 19th December.

Mr. Camara said CAF has informed them that they have finally opened an investigation into the matter and once all needed information are received and gathered, the case will be submitted to its Disciplinary Board.

“The GFF once again thanked the general public for their patience and understanding on this matter. We also wish to reassure that we will leave no stone unturned in ensuring that justice is served on this matter and any other matter concerning the development of Gambian football.
