Algerian side JS Saoura has alleged that Ghanaian side Hearts of Oak have resulted in the use of Black magic or 'juju' ahead of the second leg encounter in the CAF Confederation Cup play-offs.
In a post on social media that has gone viral, it has been reported that Hearts of Oak spread rice and pork on the football field after their last training session on Saturday.
The use of black magic or juju by the Phobians was first reported by JS Saoura president Mohamed Zerouati when the team visited Ghana for the first leg a week ago.
Zerouatu complained of a strong smell in the dressing room that was allocated to the team and blamed it on the team's defeat.
“When we arrived and during our first training session at the stadium that will host the game, we reported a weird smell a strong, very unpleasant odor. We were promised the problem will be fixed but on matchday we ran into the same problem, it’s weird,” Zerouati told the Algerian press.
“We do not know what it is but maybe is something they did to defeat us in the game,” he added.
Ahead of the second leg encounter, the use of Black Magic has popped up again associated with The Phobians after training at the match venue on Saturday evening.
