CAF to meet over Esperance vs Wydad row on Wednesday

CAF disciplinary commission will be meeting on Wednesday in Cairo, Egypt, to examine the decision from the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), which declared Esperance Tunis as African champions.

The second leg final of the CAF Champions League between Tunisian side Esperance and Wydad Casablanca of Morocco was abandoned by the 60th minute, with Esperance, who were leading by a lone goal, declared as winners.

Wydad’s protest for a replay was upheld by CAF after a review of the circumstances but the Swiss court kicked against that decision, noting that CAF Executive Committee lacked the competence to handle such matters.

It urged the continent’s football governing body to treat the case via the rightful commission.

It remains unclear what CAF will decide but the row could drag on as Esperance officials have vowed to go to CAS should their team be stripped of the title.
