The Algerian Football Federation has filed a complaint to FIFA against their Tunisian counterparts following the recent laws on foreign players quota in the Tunisian football leagues.
Reports emerging from Algerian media have it that president Zetchi Khereddine of the Algerian federation has complaint to the world football governing body [FIFA] concerning regulations promulgated by the Tunisian Football Federation on Algerians as foreign players.
The Algerian football body believes being a member of the North African Football Union, UNAF alongside Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco and Libya gives coverage to it’s players.
The Algerian Football Federation in collaboration with some clubs are holding on to article four of the FIFA statutes which handles the cases of discrimination and likening Tunisia’s move to discrimination.
Strange enough the Tunisian Football Federation took the decision without consulting other members of the UNAF. Tunisia host multiple players from other UNAF member countries and have their players in the other member countries.
This comes barely weeks after reports also emerged that the Egyptian federation intends to also reduce the number of foreign players in their domestic championship and consider UNAF countries players as foreign players.
It is on the UNAF members and FIFA to find a way forward for the good of football after all football doesn’t have barriers.
