Kaizer Chiefs have more issues to worry about before the CAF Champions League match against Wydad Atheltic Club, as they cannot enter the country Morroco due to their visas not being issued by their government. Chiefs are set to travel to Casablanca but with such hiccups, this will make it harder for them to even play the match. As it is scheduled to play on Saturday, 21:00 South African time at Stade Mohammed V. The Phefeni Glamour Boys is set to depart from OR Tambo International Airport later today.


Even worse, anyone from South Africa has been banned from entering Morroco, as the country has been seen as an epicentre of COVID-19. The latest South African statistics: there has been 1.48 million cases confirmed, 59.8 million people recovered and 2.34 million people have died. This now compared to Morocco, which has 476 000 total cases, 456 000 recoveries and 8 424 deaths. Hence Morocco is scared that if they allow Chiefs to their country, then this might affect their Coronavirus numbers.


"Kaizer Chiefs will once again send a delegation to the Morrocan Embassy this morning in an effort to seek clarity and request for the issuing of visas to the team can catch their flight and honour the fixture against Wydad in Casablanca on Saturday," wrote Chiefs on their statement. 


Although has been no response from Ministry of Health which will need to grant Chiefs special permission to enter the country due to the high number of COVID-19 infections, but Amakhosi are not planning to quit from their attempt to get their visas. It has to be said that Amakhosi did do the requirements that need to be done when a team is travelling to a different country. They booked flights, secured accommodation, submission of visa applications and so on. However, it is still an uphill battle for Chiefs as things have not been going well in the DStv Premiership but they're hoping that their luck will change in the CAF Champions League. Following their embarrassing 2-1 loss against Richards Bay in the Nedbank Cup Last 32, Chiefs wants to see more success in the CAF Champions League.
