Benin Republic’s French coach, Michel Dussuyer has been forced to postpone by 48 hours, the release of the list of players for the Africa Cup of Nations qualifying duel scheduled for 27 March in Porto Novo.
Sports Village Square learnt that the coach has been left frustrated over the refusal of oversea clubs to release many players he had earlier penciled down.
He had earlier planned to unfold the list this Tuesday at the Conference Hall of the Ministry of Sports in Cotonou. He complained that several of his players, especially those in France were told that they would not be released for both the home match with Nigeria and the away encounter with Sierra Leone.
He remarked that several of the players were obliged to observe a period of quarantine. He lamented that he was helpless as an earlier circular last year by FIFA which gave the clubs the option of refusal to release the player, was still operational.
