CAF Confederation Cup: Young Africans Accuse Dedebit FC of Mistreatment
Addis Ababa, Ethiopia – Tanzania’s representative in the Orange Confederation Cup, Young Africans Ã¢â‚¬Å“YangaÃ¢â‚¬Â, arrived safely in Ethiopia on Thursday ahead of the preliminary round return leg against Dedebit, but accused their hosts of sabotage.
According to reports from one of the officials who accompanied the team in Addis Ababa, upon their arrival, Yanga were poorly treated by their hosts, Dedebit in a deliberate attempt to disrupt them ahead of tomorrow’s decider.
He said Yanga players and officials were left stranded at the Addis Ababa Bole International Airport for four hours before they were collected by their hosts.
The official further claimed that Yanga were accommodated at a hotel that was below the standards, but thanks to the Tanzania Ambassador to Ethiopia, they were taken to another hotel.
A contingent of 26 people, including 18 players and eight officials are in Ethiopia, as Yanga vie for a victory against Dedebit to seal their place to the next round.
The Premier League side could only manage a 4-4 draw in the first leg tie played at home about a fortnight ago.
