Africa Cup of Nations affects Liverpool

I spoke with contacts in Liverpool this week concerning the African Cup of Nations.

The future of this tournament is in doubt because of Covid-19.

The draw was to be made on 26th June but this has been scrapped.

The problem has been further confused because the host nation Cameroon is suffering a civil war.

This has an effect on Liverpool who expected to lose three of their stars in Sadio Mane, Mohammed Salah and Naby Kieta.

The competition was scheduled to run from January 9th to February 6th 2022 and Liverpool had already made plans how they would cope with losing the three key players.

Now they have revised their plans.
