It has now been several months without any football matches in Libya. Though many blame the Covid-19 pandemic for it, games in Libya’s premier league stopped even before the spread of coronavirus.
But to some good news now, games are about to begin. Nasser Fakroun, head coach of Al Ahli Benghazi can’t wait.
“The Libyan Football Federation has had its shortcomings for not starting the local league, we could have restarted the Libyan Premier League by now. It is unreasonable, as you know, for Al Ahli to go 13 months without playing any matches, this has a huge impact on the players and for football in Libya. Even CAF or FIFA have agreed to us to start the league this year” he says. (Vanguard)
