Amrouche made this statement after the game between Libya and South Africa in Durban which ended in a scoreless draw. He said after the game that he was looking forward to playing against the Super Eagles.
South Africa is a fantastic team and have fantastic players and it’s not easy to play against them.
For me, I’m ready for Nigeria; if they want we can play both games in Nigeria; they believe in juju and we believe in God.
Later, he tweeted an apology after he was called out for his statement
His tweet reads:
I apologise to the Nigeria football community for using the words JUJU in the press conference in SA. I used the word in jest. I respect Nigerians and their RICH football tradition. I’m a man who likes joking,but I realise I used the word out of context. Please accept my apologies.
