The Madrid club had initially asked Lass not to travel, but once he arrived in Morocco for the AFCON qualifier, he decided to leave of his own volition, and says he wasn’t advised or directed to by anybody else.

Guinea is the second most infected African country with the Ebola infection, as 648 deaths have so far been recorded. Though there is no suspicion that one of his Guinea teammates has contracted the virus, Bangoura opted to leave the camp for his own peace of mind anyway.

Rayo Vallecano have informed that a few days ago the club’s director general, Luis Yañez, communicated to Lass his concerns regarding the trip to Africa and advised the player to stay in Spain.
