Cameroon express "consternation" in response to CAF criticism

Cameroon express

Despite having been awarded the 2019 CAF Africa Cup of Nations tournament, CAF President Ahmad, says Cameroon still needs to convince the football governing body.

Cameroon, who last staged the continental showcase in 1972, has plans to have seven stadia and 25 training pitches available for the tournament, and claimed in a statement the CAF president had pre-empted an upcoming inspection.

During a trip to Burkina Faso, Ahmad suggested there was still time for Cameroon to be stripped of hosting rights if it doesn't have the requisite facilities in place.

"FECAFOOT are particularly preoccupied by the fact these words come before the first CAF inspection team, planned for 20-28 August, has come to Cameroon".

Having been named as hosts while the tournament was still meant to be a 16-team event, Cameroon clearly still has to convince a team of experts appointed by CAF that they have the resources and the infrastructure to hold an extended event.

"Regarding Cameroon, we will send the experts and we will decide at the end of their inspection mission".

"It is hard, after the above-mentioned remarks by the CAF president, not to pay attention to persistent rumors about the existence of a conspiracy to withdraw the organization of CAN 2019 in favor of another CAN country", explained the Cameroonians.

"We have decided that it is no longer the CAF Executive Committee who will inspect the countries selected for the organization of the AFCON". He wondered if the future inspection team can be impartial given that Ahmad Amad has already taken clear stance regarding Cameroon's preparedness before the CAF inspection visitation to the country.
