We are now hoping to reach a compromise with Fredi and the Mali FA to allow him to play for us against Liverpool on January 17.
The tournament in Tunisia sees Mali start their Group B challenge against Kenya on January 26. They then play Burkina Faso on the 30th and Senegal on February 2. The final takes place on February 14.
The Club would like to inform fans that we received official confirmation late Thursday afternoon from FIFA that Fredi Kanoute will be eligible to play for Mali in the African Nations Cup.
