TP Mazembe cancels Morocco camp ahead of CAF Champions League quarterfinals

Congolese side TP Mazembe has cancelled planned training camp in Morocco ahead of their CAF Champions League quarterfinal match against Raja Casablanca on February 28.

According to Congolese media, the Ravens had planned to pitch camp at Mohammed VI Sports Centre in Maamoura as they prepare to take on the Moroccan side on Friday.

It is understood that Mazembe had to pull the plug on the trip after the Congolese government reneged on their promise to bankroll their stay in Morocco. 

The club confirmed the cancellation through their manager in a tweet.

"Given the vain promises and the selective treatment by the Congolese government on the management of TPM, and as protested by FECOFA, the Ravens management had no other choice but to cancel the camp," he tweeted.

The former Champions League winners had to shift their focus to local action as they played a Linafot match on Sunday and are scheduled to play another this weekend before flying to Morocco on Monday. They play Raja at Mohamed V Complex before the teams meet a week later in Kinshasa for the return leg.
