🇹🇳 Esperance receives heavy penalties for CAF Champions League chaos

Esperance's continental woes continued on Wednesday after CAF slapped heavy penalties following their CAF Champions League first leg tie against Zamalek in Cairo last Friday. 

Esperance were beaten 3-1 in the first leg and face an uphill task in overturning the deficit in the reverse fixture set for Friday at Rades Olympic Stadium. 

CAF Disciplinary Board slapped a four-match suspension on head coach Mouine Chaabani and fine of $20, 000  for his aggressive behaviour and use of offensive words at the match officials. Assistant coach Mejdi Traou received a similar ban but fined $50,000 for similar actions.

The Board also banned midfielder Khalil Chamam for six matches and issued with $40,000 fine for spitting on the match officials. Another player Abderaouf Benguit was banned for four matches and fined $20,000 for offensive language. 

The club was also fined $10,000 after their fans used flares in the fiery encounter played at the Cairo International Stadium.
