The Board of the Royal Moroccan Football Federation (FRMF) met Tuesday in Rabat, rejected all sporting and financial sanctions taken by the Executive Committee of the Confederation of African Football (CAF), seeing decisions which will be “against the development of African football” and “not based on any regulatory basis.”
The Steering Committee is “greatly surprised”with the decisions taken by the CAF, and asserts that they in no way reflect the findings of the prior meeting in Cairo with the President of CAF, “said the governing body of the national football in a statement released Tuesday night on its website.
FRMF is committed “to take all necessary steps and measures to uphold the rights and interests of the Moroccan football,” the source added.
“The Director of the FRMF Committee decided to leave latitude to the President of the FRMF to take all steps and measures it deems appropriate and ensure to keep the public informed on further developments in this matter “.
Last Friday, the CAF Executive Committee had decided to suspend the Moroccan selection for the next two CAN 2017 and 2019.
Morocco had requested the postponement of the CAN, originally scheduled from January 17 to February 8, 2015, for reasons related to the Ebola epidemic.
The Executive Committee, met during the course of the 30th edition of the CAN, also agreed to a fine of $ 1 million for the FRMF and to charge the FRMF the sum of 8.05 million euros “in repair all material damage. ”
