Watford reject Senegal claims of ‘blocking’ Sarr from playing at AFCON

Watford reject Senegal claims of ‘blocking’ Sarr from playing at AFCON

Premier League membership, Watford has refuted accusations from the Senegalese soccer federation (FSF) that they’re stopping ahead Ismaila Sarr from taking part in within the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations.

The FSF claimed Watford had displayed “disrespectful, pernicious and discriminatory behaviour”.


“The Senegalese Football Federation wishes to express by this press release its deep condemnation of the disrespectful, pernicious and discriminatory behaviour of the leaders of Watford who seek by all means to prevent a player from playing with his national team,” an FSF assertion stated.

But Watford believes Sarr, who’s at the moment sidelined with a knee damage and has not featured for the Premier League membership since November, will not be but match sufficient to characteristic on the match in Cameroon later this month.


The membership additionally responded with their very own assertion, inviting the FSF to have Sarr checked by their “own independent surgeon to confirm the diagnosis and rehabilitation period.”


“In early December, the Club wrote to the Senegal Football Federation outlining the clinical diagnosis of Ismaila’s injury and immediately followed that up by supplying the MRI scans detailing the extent of the injury,” Watford’s assertion stated.


“After further consultation with medical experts, we informed the Federation of Ismaila’s rehabilitation process and likely timeframe of recovery.”


This follows the same AFCON row over striker Emmanuel Dennis which ended with him being ‘excused’ from Nigeria’s squad, with NFF saying the English membership have been “baring fangs” for refusing to launch Dennis for worldwide obligation.
