“When you qualify for Africa, you need to furnish the Football Association your travel itinerary, and it is based on that, that the GFA or PLB or Competition Management Committee will decide on how to reschedule your match,” he said.
“We don't take decisions in isolation just because we hate team A or B. Whatever decision the Football Association has taken was based on the travel itinerary presented to them,” he added.
