African Champions League: Esperance to fight replay as Wydad will consider ruling




Esperance were initially awarded victory – but will now have to replay the second leg

Tunisian club Esperance vow not to “give up their rights” while Wydad Casablanca’s President Said Naciri told BBC Sport he is waiting “to make a final decision”.

The comments came after the Confederation of African Football (Caf) ordered Esperance to replay the second leg of the Champions League final.

The Tunisians have also been ordered to return the trophy.

Esperance led 1-0 in Friday’s second leg but their Moroccan opponents left the pitch after an equaliser they scored was disallowed.

Wydad wanted the video assistant referee to check if the goal should stand but the system was not working.
