Gambia: Sarr Dismisses Favouritism Claims

Gaffer Sarr and boys have come under intense attacks from certain quarters and are accused of being preferentially treated by the Gambia Football Association Normalising Committee.

GFA division One league fixture sees the capital outfit playing at home in three of its games in a row scheduled at the Banjul Mini-stadium - a playing venue that hosts matches of most Banjul-based teams.

The charges leveled by the critics have not gone unnoticed by Real's manager who in his reply claims that the issue is being 'misunderstood'.

"I think it is a misunderstanding. Most of the teams are registered in Banjul. If you look at our game against Hawks, Hawks are a Banjul team, so obviously the venue will be in Banjul. Young Africans are also a Banjul team and Gambia Ports Authority. The same thing was said about Brikama the other time. They failed to understand that the only venues used for the league is Brikama, Serrekunda East and Banjul mini-stadium and like I said most of the teams registered under Banjul. So I see no point in what they are saying. I think they misunderstood the thing." Alagie Sarr told Foroyaa Sports, blasting back.

Real de Banjul takes on Armed Forces at the Banjul mini-stadium tomorrow at 4:30 pm. Real tops the league by six points.
