ES Setif chief laments over Baba Yara Stadium training request fiasco

General Manager of ES Setif Djihad Boulahdjile has expressed his disappointment at authorities in charge of the Baba Yara Sports Stadium for turning down their request to train at the edifice ahead of their Wednesday's CAF Champions League clash against Aduana Stars.

The Algerian giants touched down in Ghana over the weekend ahead of the second preliminary stage of the CAF Champions League encounter against Aduana Stars.

Just a day after arriving, the eighth-time Algerian champions requested to train at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium before travelling to Dormaa on Tuesday for the much anticipated showdown.

However, their request was rejected by the authorities at the facility before they resorted to train at the Opoku Ware School Park.

"I am very surprised at those responsible for the Kumasi Stadium because they didnt allow us train there, I thought we are friends, and Africans who show solidarity," Boulahdjile fined on Oyerepa FM.

"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 us," he added.
