AS Police? Bros, there are at least three other teams doing better in Senegal in the last few years. This isn't a decade or more ago. The arrival of strong academies in Senegal has not only bolstered local the Senegalese national team but has improved local football especially with two local clubs that are linked directly to strong academies.


Fair enough sir, just checked the Wikipedia page for the Senegal Premier League, "AS Police" last won the league in 1979 (and are not even in the Premier league presently) so you are right and I am not.

I do remember Jeanne D'Arc as well, playing Nigerian club sides in the WAFU cup and Champions cup, come to think of it. They are still going strong.

I guess we would see how easy the draw against them is in time.

Aswani,

The landscape of football in Senegal has changed significantly since AS Police heydays. Academy football has a tremendous impact on football in Senegal both locally and in the national teams. Jeanne D'Arc is an old club that even precedes AS Police in terms of success and notoriety. However, teams like Diambarrs and Guediawaye FC have become notable forces because of academy pathways.

Not likely, I mean there is no indication whatsoever that it would happen. The only agreement on ground now is the one with Redstrike. Not sure if Redstrike will show matches on TV or live streaming as the details have not yet been released.
