Jubbaland State Accepts Verdict on a Charge against Banadir Region
Yesterday the ministry of youth and sports of the Jubbaland State sent a complaint letter against Banadir region to the Somali Football Federation. Jubbaland complained that there was a foreigner who played for Banadir in a tournament between the two. Today, the Somali Football Federation issued a reply on the case saying that player no.9, Abdimajid Osman who played for Banadir region is a Somali and not a foreigner and that he can play for any team of his choice. The federation issued the following two points:
- That the player named Abdimajid Osman is a member of Banadir football team and is not a foreigner. He can, therefore, participate in any football tournament in Somalia.
- That all competitors are informed that any Somali can take part in such competitions regardless of the passport one holds.
