We will not play Aduana in Dormaa - Al-Tahaddy President

President for Libyan club Al-Tahaddy, Khalid Kwafi says his team will not play Aduana Stars in the second leg of the CAF Champions League at the Nana Agyeman Badu Park in Dormaa if Aduana Stars doesnt fly his team to Dormaa.

According to him the team has already made a seven hours journey from Accra to Kumasi and they cannot afford to go another 200 kilometers to Dormaa by road, hence he has made a complain to FIFA, CAF and the Libyan Ambassador to Ghana.

In an interview with Kumasi based radio station Oyerepa FM he said,

“We have made a seven hours journey from Accra to Kumasi which were not even informed and this has made our trip very tiring,.

“The distance from Kumasi to Dormaa is more than 200 kilometers ,this Aduana didn’t tell us so it doesn’t make me under any circumstance to go to Dormaa to play the match.

“I have sent a complaint to FIFA, CAF and GFA so am waiting for a response. I have told Alex Asante about it and waiting for the Libyan Ambassador also.There’s no way we can lose this points. Should this happen ,we will sue CAF and Aduana I mean it.

CAF’ s regulations stipulates that if the playground away from the capital is more than 200 kilometers the match will be played in the capital so tell them I am not playing the game.I have told the Libyan FA about it or we compromise to play in Kumasi” he concluded
