Esperance de Tunis turns down CAF Champions League final replay
CAF decision to have the Champions League replayed have been turned down by Esperance De Tunis as they believe they are worthy winners of the Champions League.
Esperance De Tunis were crowned winners after their opponents, Wydad Casablanca, refused to return to the field in protest of VAR not being implemented on a goal that was ruled out.
Gambian referee Bakari Gassama chose not to use video assistance to review the goal, which led to Wydad walking off the pitch and refusing to return.
After the game was halted for over an hour, Gassama declared Esperance the champions due to Wydad's refusal to re-enter the pitch.
Following an emergency meeting on June 5, the African governing body came to the conclusion that the match should be replayed.
However, Prime Minister of Tunisia Youssef Chamed has come out with a counterclaim that, they are bent on challenging the decision and no fault should be blamed on their security as its one of the best in the world.
