'CAF has never withdrawn the CAN in Cameroon'

In November 2018, the African Football Confederation (CAF) withdrew the organization of CAN 2019 in Cameroon, reallocated to Egypt, before deciding a few weeks later to entrust it with the organization of the 2021 edition. , for the president of CAF, Ahmad, who prefers to use the term "slip", it is wrong to say that the CAN has been withdrawn in Cameroon.

"At no time did the CAF ever say, we are withdrawing the CAN in Cameroon," insisted the Malagasy at the microphone of the CRTV. “We postponed, for various reasons, (the dates). And I think the majority of people today understand what CAF and the authorities of this country want to have. All thanks to His Excellency, the President of the Republic, Paul Biya, who firmly reassured me that he wants to offer his people a beautiful CAN. ”

Cameroon will therefore finally host the CAN from January 9 to February 6, 2021.
