Real de Banjul Statement by President Mr William R Abraham on the Malicious and False Claim by some SO CALLED Football Stakeholders on Sunday 17th September 2017

“Real De Banjul Football Club would like to categorically refute the MALICIOUS and FALSE claim by some SO CALLED Football Stakeholders on Sunday 17th September 2017 saying the Gambia Football Federation spent D1,000,000.00 on Real de Banjul’s CAF Champions League Campaign in 2015 whilst refusing to support another Gambia League Champions.Real de Banjul President William Abraham

The facts are Real de Banjul as League Champions represented The Gambia in the CAF Champions League preliminary rounds against BYC FC of Liberia 2015. The first leg (CL39) was held in Banjul hosted by Real de Banjul.

During this period CAF has suspended football matches in Liberia due to the outbreak of Ebola in the country thus BYC was to find an alternative venue for the return leg (CL40).

BYC and CAF communicated to Real de Banjul and the GFF that the match shall take place in Bamako first and later changed the venue to Abidjan which was also cancelled as both venues could not be secured. In both instances Real de Banjul made arrangements to travel by booking for air tickets, paying deposits for hotels, camping and other match related cost.

CAF through the GFF appealed to Real de Banjul to host BYC FC again in Banjul promising to refund our club the extra expenditure incurred due to the two cancellations.

Real De Banjul duly complied with the CAF request and the return leg (CL40) was played in Banjul and a claim formally sent to CAF accordingly. Real De Banjul defeated BYC FC to proceed to the second round of the CAF Champions League and played Entente Sportive de Setif of Algeria.

Due to delay in receiving the agreed refund from CAF, Real de Banjul asked the GFF to partly finance the cost of the air tickets for our delegation to Algeria.


These SO CALLED Football Stakeholders who do not represent GFF member CLUB, REGIONAL FOOTBALL OR ALLIED ASSOCIATION cannot tarnish the good image of Real de Banjul a Club which have been at the forefront of Football Development in the Gambia for over five (05) Decades.

The Club and Current Management has changed the lives of many young people most recently Ablie Jallow who joined the French Ligue 1 club FC Metz and Muhammed Badamosi to Moroccan top flight club FUS Rabat among many more consistently over the years.

To Conclude Football Development is not about making baseless and false claims but to follow the right principles of the beautiful game. We at Real de Banjul shall continue to develop Gambian youths and offer them the opportunities to achieve their true potentials and be worthy citizens of our beloved country The Gambia.


Real de Banjul shall continue to support and work with the Gambia Football Federation in their quest to build the correct structures for the sustainable long-term development of our Game”.

Badamosi, who spent last season on loan at Senegalese side Olympique de Ngor, signs a four-year contract with the 2016 Moroccan champions.

"Badamosi is a rare player because he's tall, powerful and very athletic". Said Jammeh.

"He did very well at Olympique de Ngor last season thus earning him this move to FUS Rabat".

"We have a good relationship with FUS Rabat after Yusupha Njie's transfer so we're confident he will do well and score goals for the team". Jammeh added.

Badamosi is the second player to join Fath Union Sport Football Club from Real de Banjul after Yusupha Njie signed for the capital club four years ago.

Everyone at Real de Banjul would like to wish Mohamed Badamosi all the best in the next chapter of his career with FUS Rabat.
