Le Roy furious with AFCON organisers

Claude Le Roy has once again criticised the organisers of the 2015 Cup of Nations following the Republic of Congo’s draw with Equatorial Guinea.

Upon arriving in Central Africa, the experienced French boss made no secret about his unhappiness with the accommodation conditions for his Red Devils.

In a post-match conversation with SuperSport, Le Roy has once again made his complaints.

“It was close to 40 degrees and we had no air conditioning in the bus,” he began, seething, “we were supposed to have an escort but they left us in the crowd, in a big traffic jam.

“The police were just smiling.

“Games in competitions like this are won on the small details and CAF (the Confederation of African Football) have a duty to protect teams. It is not possible that players are disrespected like that. That is why we started so badly.”

Despite the upheaval, Le Roy revealed that he was content with the outcome of the Group A opener.

“I like to win but tonight I have to be satisfied with the result. How we react from now will be particularly important.”

As reported by British journalist Nick Ames on Twitter, Burkina Faso boss Paul Put is also unimpressed with his team’s facilities, describing their hotel as “a campsite.”
