Algerian club ES Setif were prevented from training at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium on Sunday as the club approached officials of Baba Yara Sports Stadium to use the venue to train ahead of their first leg encounter with Aduana Stars in the CAF Champions League preliminaries.
The general manager of ES Setif Djihad Boulahdjile has expressed his disappointment at authorities in charge of the Baba Yara Sports Stadium after they turned down a request by the Algerians to train at the stadium.
“I am very surprised at those responsible for the Baba Yara Sports Stadium because they didn’t allow us to train there.
I thought we are friends and Africans who show solidarity. Should any club come to Algeria and want to use ES Setif’s facilities, we will gladly make it available and I wanted to pay for it but they didn’t allow”, he told Kumasi based Oyerepa FM.
Aduana Stars will take on ES Setif on Wednesday, March 7, 2018 at the Nana Agyeman Badu Park in Dormaa in the first leg of the CAF Champions League preliminary round.
