Kaizer Chiefs, home to Kenyan international Anthony Akumu, might not make it to Morocco on time, with the country yet to issue them with a VISA.
Chiefs were set to travel to Morocco on Wednesday to face Wydad Athletic in their maiden CAF Champions League clash but according to the club, the Moroccan federation was yet to communicate to them.
“Due to the hold up with the issuing of visas to Morocco and lack of communication from the Moroccan football federation and authorities on the matter that involves Kaizer Chiefs travelling to the north African country, the club had no option but to move their travel to tomorrow, pending the resolution of the matter and cooperation from all the relevant parties.
“Kaizer Chiefs can confirm that the club has fulfilled all the requirements needed for their travel, including all Covid-19 protocols requirements for their trip,” the PSL giants said in a statement.
According to the club, they remain in limbo as all lines of communication seem to have been shut down as the club and SAFA have not received any correspondence from the Moroccan authorities on this matter.
