"If the FAF doesn't sign up Depú, in solidarity, our players won't go to CHAN, or to another national team commitment. Why doesn't the FAF respond to our letters", he asked, adding: "It happened with the issue of Caála, now with the matter of Laurindo Depú. It's not acceptable, it's a lack of respect, we won't go to CHAN if they don't change their minds".
Last week, Petro de Luanda released a press release in which it expressed its dissatisfaction with the Angolan Football Federation (FAF), for not responding to several requests from the club, for a clarification meeting on the non-issuance of Depú's license, between other complaints.
With this decision, the national coach, the Portuguese Pedro Gonçalves, runs the risk of being prevented from having Petro de Luanda players in the squad.
