Alves Simões responds to Akwá at a press conference
Interclube’s Chairman Fernando Alves Simões has convened a press conference today, which will serve as a response to the accusations made by the former captain of the Palancas Negras.
According to the communiqué that Claque Magazine had access to, the conference aims to clarify some matters related to the statements made by Akwá in an interview with Rádio Despertar, whose name of Alves Simões, as former coordinator of the national teams of the Federation Angolan Football Association (FAF), under the management of Justino Fernandes, is quoted as benefiting from the 260,000 dollars, given by the Executive in 2009, under the guidance of the then Prime Minister, Paulo Cassoma, for the payment of his debt to the organ rector of world football.
The situation comes as a result of Akwá’s punishment since 2008, applied by the International Federation of Associated Football (FIFA), after Al-Wakra, the Qatar club in which he acted, accused him of leaving the team to defend Angola in the African Championship of the Nations (CAN) of 2006.
In an interview with Rádio Despertar, the former captain of the Palancas Negras, challenged Interclube’s current president, Alves Simões, to prove the opposite of the money given by the government to pay the fine to the International Federation of Associated Football (FIFA).
