Wydad Casablanca win Super Cup [Football Planet]

Football Planet

Top in the headlines of Football Planet this week: Wydad Casablanca have finally won the CAF Super Cup after their third attempt. The Moroccans overcame Congolese giants TP Mazembe 1-0 on Saturday to bag the honours.

Magique Système, the modern slavery of African footballers, is the title of a book that speaks unconditionally of the cynicism of a system that reduces thousands of African players into simple trafficking objects, victims of corrupt agents and the complicity of some clubs. To shed more light on that in this show was Barthélémy Gaillard, one of the authors.

And then, a bit of women’s football and a big disappointment for Ivory Coast who were beaten Saturday 1-0 in Abidjan by the Black Queens of Ghana in the final of the first edition of the WAFU Zone B tournament.
