RS Berkane jersey against USMA: CAF slaps Algeria again

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has rejected the appeal of the Algerian Football Federation (FAF) regarding the use of RS Berkane of its usual jersey, flocked with the full map of Morocco with its Sahara.

While it had already declared itself in favor of the sporting renaissance of Berkane, CAF reiterated its decision to allow the Moroccan club to play this evening in the semi-final first leg of the Confederation Cup, against USM Alger, with its usual jersey.

Thus, in correspondence addressed this Sunday, April 21, to the Algerian Football Federation (see below), the appeal jury of the supreme body of African football summons the Algerian leaders to respect its decision taken the day before, consisting of the Moroccan club playing with its jersey.

A decision comes a few hours before the meeting between USM Algiers and RS Berkane, scheduled for this evening at 8 p.m. (Moroccan time), at the 5-July-1962 stadium in Algiers.
