The President of the Libyan Football Federation (LFF), Anwar Al-Tishani, said that the LFF did its best to resume the Libyan Football League this season and talked with all pertaining sides, pointing that the football clubs are to call the shots now whether they can resume playing or not.
Speaking on Libya Al-Riyadiya radio station, Al-Tishani added that a group of eastern clubs insists on receiving a financial support before they start playing in the League, knowing that the LFF split the League into eastern and western groups to reduce the cost of transportation throughout the matches of the League.
“All of the clubs must assume responsibility as the African Football Federation warned that Libyan football clubs would be banned from participating in its competitions if there were not any Libyan domestic competitions, and thus they will be sanctioned.” Al-Tishani added.
He also indicated that the next generation of footballers would have little chance in playing on a regular basis, which might deprive the national Libyan team of taking part in the qualifiers of the African Cup or World Cup.
Al-Tishani added that the General Assembly of the LFF, which includes 120 clubs, will hold a meeting on April 06, and he called on all parties, clubs, and State specialized authorities to be united and resume the Libyan League, adding that a press conference will take place in the coming days to inform the public about the truth behind the absence of the League.
