The Senegal FA stated: "The FSF wishes to express its deep condemnation of the disrespectful, pernicious and discriminatory behaviour of Watford who seek by all means to prevent a player from playing with his national team. Africa, its football and its footballers deserve the same respect as that accorded to other continents, confederations and players." Watford replied: "In early December, the club wrote to the Senegal Football Federation outlining the clinical diagnosis of Ismaila's injury and immediately followed that up by supplying the MRI scans detailing the extent of the injury. After further consultation with medical experts, we informed the Federation of Ismaila's rehabilitation process and likely timeframe of recovery. Within the past 10 days, the club has reiterated to the Senegal Football Federation the player's current medical status and recovery schedule. The Hornets have have also invited the Senegal Football Federation to instruct their own independent surgeon to confirm the diagnosis and rehabilitation period."
