Hespress ENSaturday 20 April 2024 – 18:36

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has sided with RS Berkane after they were held in an Algerian airport for wearing jerseys with the full map of Morocco.

CAF instructed Algerian authorities to release the Moroccan club’s luggage ahead of their match against USM Alger in the CAF Confederation Cup semi-final first leg, sources told Hespress AR.

This is after the team left for their hotels after spending ten hours in the airport trying to retrieve equipment seized by the Algerian customs.

Sources confirmed that CAF approved RS Berkane’s kit, including the map of Morocco, for the current season.

The same source clarified that RS Berkane officials informed the CAF that they would only participate in the match if they received their jerseys.
