CAF Issues Statement Following Esperance vs Raja Matches

    The Confederation of African Football (CAF) condemned the behavior of the fans in the matches between JS Kabylie and Esperance de Tunis in Rades and Al-Ahly and Moroccan Raja in Casablanca in the second leg of the Champions League quarter-finals.

    The Rades stadium witnessed unfortunate events on the part of the Esperance fans: fires caught fire, and the match was stopped more than once by the match referee.

    A Moroccan fan was also killed in a stampede before a match between the Moroccan Rajah and Al Ahly.

    “The scenes in Tunisia and Casablanca were unacceptable and we cannot allow this to happen in football,” CAF said in a statement posted on its website on Monday.

    He continued: “We strongly condemn the unbridled behavior of some fans in Al Ahly vs. Al Raja and Al Taraja vs. J. S. Kabili.”

    He continued: “CAF will refer the whole case to the judicial structure for further investigation.”

    “The Champions League quarter-finals have been a stunning spectacle and an advertisement for African football. We’ve seen some exciting matches that have reaffirmed the appeal of African club competition.”
