Ahmed Ahmed: I do not expect to repeat the events of the Champions League final in Egypt .. and a statement to respond to the decision Viva


Ahmed Ahmed, president of the African Union "K", he does not expect the repeat events of the final of the African Champions League, which brought together the Wydad Casablanca and the Tunisian Tigers in Egypt, which organizes the African Cup of Nations version 2019.

The remarks of the president of KAF came during the press conference held Thursday, before the start of the African Cup of Nations scheduled for Friday.

"I feel comfortable and optimistic about holding the tournament in Egypt, and nothing like that will happen again," added K.

He added: "We are happy to take the decision to transfer the tournament in Egypt, and we feel that we are in our home here in Egypt and not a prisoner in charge here and I am in complete safety."

On the use of video technology from the start of the quarter-finals, K's chief said: "This is a precaution we have agreed not to apply in the group stage, because everyone does not know how to use it."

"We have to go back to those who have experience and agreed to use them in the semi-finals but we preferred to use them in the quarter-finals."

And the selection of sufficient referees to manage the games: "This decision is not our business, the choices of the rulers of the most important functions of the Referees Committee is responsible for selection or exclusion."

"All we do is review the names in the Executive Committee, not our role," he said.

"There will be a statement in which we announce our position and I will not respond now."

Ghanaian press reports have confirmed that FIFA will decide to take over administrative reform within KAF (see details).

"We will resume negotiations with the broadcasting rights company to ensure the best for all, but so far everything has been legal and we have followed all legal procedures," Ahmed said.
