Libya Coach Apologizes To Nigeria For 'Juju' Comment

Libya's coach, Adel Amrouche has apologized to Nigerians for the "juju" comments he made about Super Eagles ahead of their 2019 Africa Cup of Nations clash in October. Amrouche stated in his post match interview after his side's goalless draw away to South Africa in Durban that the Nigerian team bank on "juju" and will prefer to play against them.

He also added that Nigeria can go ahead to host botgties 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 apologize to the Nigeria football community for using the words  JUJU in the press conference in SA. I used the word in jest," A mrouche tweeted via his official handle on sunday.

"I respect Nigerians and their RICH football tradition. I'm a man who likes joking, but I realize I used the word out of context. Please accept my apologies."
