Sundowns Yet To Find Training Pitch In Morocco

Mamelodi Sundowns Yet To Find Pitch For Training In Morocco

By Soccer Laduma - Sep 20, 2017 12:23 PM

Mamelodi Sundowns are yet to find a training pitch to begin preparations for the CAF Champions League encounter against Wydad Athletic Club in Morocco.

The Brazilians touched down in Morocco yesterday, September 19, where they were set to begin training for Saturday’s second leg CAF Champions League quarter-final clash against Wydad Athletic.

However, the Siya crew has since been informed that Wydad Athletic have not organised a training pitch for the Brazilians to begin their preparations, with FUS Rabat also refusing to allow the CAF Champions League winners to use their pitch.

There are just three days to go before the second leg quarter-final encounter on Saturday, September 23, with Head Coach Pitso Mosimane’s side now left stranded without a pitch for training.

Indications are that Sundowns will look to take the matter up with CAF today and it remains to be seen whether the Brazilians will find a place to train before the day ends.

South Africans must start treating this stupids the sameway when they come to SA. They are always treated like kings but look what they are doing to us.Especially countries where men are wearing dresses are mostly behaving like this, and CAF allow that to heppen. This is not fair at all.

This is foul play why Caf is still silent on the matter nothing has changed at CAF its still the same as it was lead by Issa Hayatou they should've reacted yesterday when Downs started to surface the problem, if we don't get a pitch before the end of today Downs must refuse to play and CAF must deal with Blanca ......

You prepare for any eventuality when visiting these African Countries. If we don't overcome this predicament means that we were not prepared. No mercy in Africa. This of course will be celebrated by @Vongani!, @Xolisa{Khosificsted}, banned lwandle vs editor, @malakza.
