Champions League: Aduana glad Tahadi game is in Egypt

The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Aduana Stars, Albert Commey has shared his club’s joy over CAF’s announcement that, their Champions League away game with Libyan side, Tahadi FC will be played in Egypt next month.

According to Commey, the club officially wrote to the African football controlling body, requesting that, the game is moved to Egypt in view of the political situation in Libya.

”We wrote to the FA for us to know the venue. If now CAF has confirmed the match will take place at Alexandra, Egypt to be precise, then it falls within our plans” he said.

”They’ve been playing matches there so we won’t be complacent to say it’s a neutral ground. We are not looking at that. When you look at the style of Aduana Stars, whether it is your home or our home, we play our normal game” Commey explained.

“When you take your game seriously, where it’s played doesn’t matter. Our checks revealed that, they have been playing at Alexandra in Egypt. For that matter, we are very happy with CAF’s confirmation”.

Meanwhile, Albert Commey has also described the ongoing G-8 tournament as a helpful, preparatory competition, aiding them to put their team in good shape.

”We will take one game at a time with all seriousness. It’s an opportunity for us and to help the technical staff to access the players” he argued.
