CAF CL: Orlando Pirates hit at Esperance for messing up changing room after draw

CAF CL: Orlando Pirates hit at Esperance for messing up changing room after draw

03 Feb 2019, 10:55

CAF Champions League defending champions, Esperance SC from Tunisia, made their frustrations known to their hosts, Orlando Pirates, after the two played to a barren draw on Saturday.

The champions dominated 59 percent of possession, attempted six shots but none on target as the resilient hosts kept their backline clean.

Being a champion is not just a punch line reserved for those who win titles,” Orlando started their rant “It is a state of mind and above all, a responsibility. Leaving a room in this state when you’re a guest in someone’s house says a lot about one’s mentality and responsibility as a champion.”

Esperance fans are currently serving a two-match stadium ban for causing chaos in their clash against Al AHly in last year's final.

The draw left both sides tagged on five points at the top of group B followed by AC Horoya and FC platinum for four and one respectively.
