first_imgThe founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Liberia’s jiffy football giant — FC Fassell, Mr. Cassell A. Kuoh, has said that the exceptionally hot weather in Bamako, Mali attributed to their narrow 4-3 defeat to Horoya AC of Guinea in the CAF Cup competition.The FC Fassell owner said according to medical reports, some of the players suffered from heat cramps, while others were under the weather (sick) owing to a rapid drop in blood pressure and loss of fluid and salt through perspiration.The FC Fassell financier gave these explanations on Wednesday in an interview with the Daily Observer, in Monrovia.“We could not cope with the hot weather and the three days’ acclimatization did not help us,” Mr. Kouh said. “Some of our dependable players fell ill owing to the sun which caused their body temperatures (pressure) to rise.”He added: “The blood pressure changes put the body under strain and increases the risk of heart attack and stroke.”Mr. Kouh further said inexperience caused the first-comer (FC Fassell) to be crushed, coupled with the language problem (French speaking).“The host and match officials spoke French – and most of the fouls and goals were moot,” Mr. Kouh said. “However, we must thank the Mali Federation Association for hosting us and our technical staff and players.”He stated that though his side lacked experience, he hailed them for their confidence in the two games which ended 1-0 and 3-3, respectively that led to their ousting in a 4-3 aggregate.Founded in 1975, Horoya AC appeared six times in the African Cup of Champions Clubs; seven times in the CAF Cup Winners’ Cup and made the appearance of three each in the CAF Champions League and CAF Cup, respectively as well as in the West African Cup championship.Both games were played in Bamako as a neutral ground for the two Ebola-hit countries.The Confederation of African Football (CAF), because of the outbreak of the deadly Ebola Virus Disease (EVD), delocalized football activities in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia thus forcing clubs participating in CAF competitions to find neutral venues for their respective home matches.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
