Wydad facing CAFCL exclusion

African Football

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has threatened to exclude Wydad Casablanca from the next campaign of the CAF Champions League. 

Despite qualifying for the next edition of the CAF Champions League, Moroccan giants Wydad Casablanca face the prospect of "exclusion" from the upcoming campaign due to a dispute with their former star Chisom Elvis Chikatara.  

According to Tunisian outlet Kawarji, CAF has ordered the two-time Champions League winners to resolve their dispute with the former player, with the club understood to be owing the Nigerian player unpaid fees. 

The issue has already been taken to and adjudicated by the Court of Arbitration for Sport, and CAF has stepped up its call for a resolution. 

The governing body for African football also threatened to impose sanctions on the Royal Moroccan Federation for issuing an unpermitted African licence to Casablanca. 

The letter sent to Casablanca by CAF indicates that the Moroccan side has been given until 15 August to submit paperwork confirming the settlement of the dispute with Chikatara.
