Togo goalkeeper Kodjovi Obilale is planning to seek compensation from the Confederation of African Football (CAF), amid fears he will never play football again.
The 25-year-old has been in hospital in South Africa since he was airlifted there following the attack and has had five operations.
Obilale told French media, "Before thinking about playing football again, I hope to find again the form of a human being, I think I can recover in six months. But will I take up football again? I don't know. I want to press charges. Notably against CAF. I don't know yet on what basis to attack them because I have to get information from a lawyer. But I want people to go before the court. Tomorrow, if I can't play football anymore, what am I going to do?"
The Pontivy goalkeeper was forced to issue an emotional appeal last month for help getting home after Angola refused to pay the US$90,000 repatriation costs.
