TFF fines Yanga heavily, warns Luc Eymael over conduct

The Tanzania Football Federation (TFF) has fined Yanga SC TShs 500,000($210)over their failure to control their fans during the fiery Kariokor Derby match against rivals Simba FC.

Yanga has also been fined a similar amount for their failure to attend a pre-match meeting during their match against Prisons FC. Prisons officials missed the meeting as well and have been handed a similar fine.

Yanga were further slapped with a fine of a similar amount for refusing to use the allocated dressing room during their match against Simba FC early this month.  

At the same time, TFF has warned Yanga coach Luc Eymael over his conduct after he sensationally claimed that he was racially discriminated by match referee Hans Mabena. 

Eymael accused Mabena of racism when the latter refused to shake his hand after he sent off defender Ally Mtoni Sonso their 1-0 loss at Azam on Saturday. 

“Yanga SC coach [Luc Eymael] is therefore warned following his remarks that are uncalled for and the club has been directed to make him understand the importance of discipline all through,” TFF said in a statement on their Twitter account.

TFF further fined Yanga's Mrisho Ngasa, Ramadhan Kabwili and Cleofas Sospeter as well as Mbeya City's Kelvin John and Majaliwa Shaban TShs 500,000 each for refusing to use changing rooms. The players have also been suspended for three matches each. 

Meanwhile, Coastal Union official Salum Perembo has been indicted for storming the pitch and trying to physically attack match officials. He is also accused of verbally abusing the referees. He will await his sanctions at a later date.
