Libyan coach Adel Amrouche has taken back his words after he accused Nigeria’s Super Eagles of relying on “Juju” to win their games.
“South Africa is a fantastic team and has fantastic players and it’s not easy to play against them. For me, I’m ready for Nigeria; if they want we can play both games in Nigeria; they believe in juju and we believe in God.”
However, Amrouche tweeted:
“I apologise to the Nigeria football community for using the words JUJU in the press conference in SA.
“I used the word in jest. I respect Nigerians and their RICH football tradition. I’m a man who likes joking, but I realise I used the word out of context. Please accept my apologies.”
