Gambia Football Federation (GFF) says it
has found assertions of Seaview Gardens Hotel proprietor that the Football
Federation has decided to lodge the senior national team at his hotel for this
month’s Africa cup of Nations qualifiers at home to Benin as unfounded.
The country’s football governing body said contrary to the statement made by Hatib Janneh, they never visited Seaview Hotel; neither have they sent anyone to make reservations for them there. “In fact GFF is pleased to announce that the Ministry of Youth and Sports is responsible for the air ticket and accommodation of the players and as a result would decide which hotel the boys would be lodged at and not the federation.
The Football House further reiterated that it’s position with regard to Seaview Hotel remains unchanged and as long as they are responsible for the lodging of the players, they won’t send their players there unless all their complains and concerns are addressed fully.
