Libya's outspoken coach , Adel Amrouche has seeked for forgiveness to Nigerians for the
"juju" remarks he made about Super Eagles towards their 2019 Africa Cup of Nations match in October. Amrouche expressed in his post coordinate meeting after his side's goalless draw away to South Africa in Durban that the Nigerian team believed on "juju" and will like to play against them.
He also added that Nigeria can go ahead to host both ties as the Mediterranean Knights have been playing their ‘home’ World Cup and Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers in Mali, Egypt and Tunisia over the last five years due to the unrest in the country.
“I apologise to the Nigeria football community for using the words JUJU in the press conference in SA.I used the word in jest,” Amrouche tweeted via his official handle on Sunday.
“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.”
