Horoya’s Covid-19 nightmare


Guinean side Horoya only has 12 in-field players available for their semi-final Confederation Cup clash against Egypt’s Pyramids FC.

The sides meet in Casablanca later today, with the winner set to face Moroccan outfit Berkane in the final on Sunday.

It is a very weakened Horoya who will present themselves against Pyramids FC.

“For the moment, we only have 12 in-field players and two goalkeepers,” said Horoya coach Lamine Ndiaye.

The rest of the team tested positive for Covid-19.

“We knew that the match would be very difficult, even with our full squad. But it’s still football, so we prepared for this match.”

Ndiaye added: “Today it will have to be played especially with the heart, in relation to all that has happened. Those who will have the chance to play will first have to think about those who wanted to play this match, who dreamed of it for months but who are unfortunately bedridden.”
