BREAKING!! Champions League Final To Be REPLAYED After VAR Controversy

The second leg of the CAF Champions League final will be replayed after a VAR issue led to Moroccan club Wydad Casablanca walking off in protest and Tunisian side Esperance was awarded the victory.

Wydad refused to continue playing because their equalising goal with around 30 minutes remaining in the second leg was disallowed for offside and no video replay was available. The players had not been told the video system wasn’t working.

After a long delay, Esperance was awarded the Champions League title. But that outcome was overturned by the Confederation of African Football executive committee on Wednesday at a meeting in Paris, with the conduct of Esperance denounced.

No official announcement, or explanation behind the decision, was immediately made by CAF. However, committee members and the two clubs confirmed the decision.

Esperance are expected to appeal against the ruling, club officials said on Wednesday.

The Moroccan Football Federation, whose president Fouzi Lekjaa is a powerful figure within the CAF executive committee, said that the players had not been informed about the VAR technology being faulty.

Rules set by the game’s lawmakers, the International Football Association Board, state that a match cannot be invalidated because of VAR technology malfunctioning or if there is a wrong decision involving VAR.

The game will not be replayed until after the African Cup of Nations finishes on July 19.

The first leg in Morocco ended in a 1-1 draw and Esperance was leading 1-0 in the second when the controversy erupted in the second leg.

Six months ago I was desperately online searching for a helpful remedies for simplex herpes cure, i came across some helpful remedies on how Dr. Ogbeifun has helped so many people in curing genital herpes with the help of his herbal medication. after contacting him here on his website for the past 2 months however, I’ve followed his prescription on how to take the herbal medicine and it stopped all outbreaks completely even when i took foods that could trigger it before, To my greatest surprise I was cured completely after going for a medical check up. i’ll tell everyone reading this testimony that you shouldn’t be discouraged by the medical doctor’s words about no cure for such virus, I could understand very well that they are been selfish for the reason that they are enjoying receiving income for every check up . With this miraculous healing i strongly testify that there is a cure for herpes with the help of herbs and roots. And also i noticed that he is honest with every word he says about his herbal treatment.
