CAF is expected to investigate a claim by Lobi Stars FC Coach Solomon Ogbeide who revealed that some of his players were approached to throw away their CAF Champions League tie with Wydad Casablanca.
The veteran tactician told the media shortly after the game ended goalless that someone attempted to bribe his players shortly before the game in Morocco on Tuesday.
“One person in Morocco tried to bribe the players before the game to facilitate the Wydad mission,” Ogbeide said.
“It is a shame that there are still such things in Africa, and football on the continent is still corrupt.
“We will bring this incident to Caf for investigation.”
However, Wydad Casablanca are expected to make an official statement on the issue on Thursday morning with the Confederation of African Football launching an investigation.
Wydad Casablanca had earlier won the first tie in Nigeria 0-1, a result which left Lobi Stars on the brink of elimination before the goalless draw in Rabat put them back in contention for a last eight finish.
